Can you help with our Monitor Postgres research? Get involved

For SQL Monitor, does the max alert email limit apply to the max alert message?

Hi there!

In SQL Monitor, does the email limit apply to 'The alert “Job failing” for the monitored object "xxx" has reached the maximum number of email notifications in a 24-hour period' emails?

We have had a surge of emails and I just wanted to check this will stop soon.

Thank you,

    Hi Dmitri

    Thank you for your forum post.

    SQL Monitor limits the number of emails to prevent overloading the mail server.  It will not send more than 30 emails per alert, per object within a 24 hour period.

    Further reading is available here.

    If the alerts are due to maintenance being carried out of the server, you can configure a maintenance window to stop SQL Monitor raising performance and custom alerts during the maintenance period, further information here.

    You can also suspend monitoring if you have a known problem, that requires investigation and you wish to not receive alerts.  To stop monitoring a specific instance, go to Actions > Suspend monitoring.

    I hope the above helps.
