I think if it was me, I'd just modify the backup script to make the
appropriate 'monit unmonitor' call before it starts, and 'monit monitor'
when it finishes.  (Or, if you don't necessarily trust the backup script
to always finish cleanly, just add cron jobs for 11:59pm and 12:04am to
do the same.)

Or is there something I'm missing?

Subject: Time of Day exclusion?

Every night I have a cron job doing backups that drives cpu wait above
my threshold of 20% - I don't want to change the threshold as any time
other than the 3 minutes of 12:00am to 12:03am more than 20% CPU wait
would be decidedly not normal.  I've read through the documentation
extensively and don't believe there is a way to do a time of day
exclusion but figured I'd ask.

Is there any way for me to do a time of day exclusion or am I best to
just use something like:

if cpu usage (wait) > 20% for 3 cycles then alert

Assuming  "set daemon 120" is one cycle the above should be 6 minutes
which should give me buffer around my 3 minute backup.  That make sense?
Is that the only way to do what I'm trying to do?
