I have a script monitor running on multiple servers in 15 minute intervals. The "Monitoring Period" is set to exclude the hours of 12:00am to 6:00am. When the monitor wakes up at 6:00am, it sets off an Alert with the following error:

"Monitor is consistently busy and not able to run. It should run every 15m, but has been stuck in Monitor Busy for 6h 11m"

The Alert is immediately followed by at "Fixed" alert saying the problem has been resolved.

Apparently the monitor is thinking that the off-hours in the Monitoring Period are an error state that needs to be alerted.

Is there a way to prevent this? It's unnecessarily flooding my admin's Inbox.
