I think if it was me, I'd just modify the backup script to make the

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?

Hrm, yeah, I guess I could call 'monit unmonitor' I just think stopping monitoring for this period of time seems overkill. To me a system has these regular events that are nomal and repeatable but don't necessarily happen outside of specific times. I'll see how my increase to 'if cpu usage (wait) > 20% for 3 cycles then aler' works and if that fails I'll give the 'monit unmonitor' idea a try.

Would be cool if monit could "learn" what normal was but I'll leave that kind of idea to much more complicated (and expensive!) systems. :)
