  3. Click the Exclusion Intervals tab, and then click New.
  4. Enter a unique name for the exclusion interval in the Name field.
  5. Optional: In the Assign to All section, you can assign the exclusion interval to all alert configurations or only to trend alert configurations.
    • To assign the exclusion interval to all existing and future alert configurations, click Alerts .
    • To assign the exclusion interval to all existing and future trend alert configurations, click Trend.
  6. From the Exclude section, specify one of the following time frame options for the exclusion interval:
    • To set a one-time exclusion interval, select From.
    • To set a daily exclusion interval, select Every day.
    • To set a weekly exclusion interval, select Every week from.
  7. Click OK.
