Hi Guys,
was looking for SCOM category questions but dint able to find that. anyhow Seeing at SCOM 2007 R2 notification emails.. these are just a mess for my inbox. particularly below three events are just way too much...

1-)The.Operations.Manager.agent.processes.are.using.too.much.processor.time
2-)Memory.Pages.Per.Second.is.too.High.] has changed to WARNING
3-)Workflow.Runtime:.Failed.to.run.a.WMI.query] has changed to WARNING


I understand that it require overrides tuning in SCOM.  Need your detail suggestions to fix this up. because the threshold on which these events are default configured are really not concerned for us so want to have a step by step process to tune up my SCOM environment

You can change the subscription to send messages for critical only. You will not be disturbed for Warning alerts.

And you can create an override like this.

The above example is very simplistic.

You need to reconfigure your email alert subscription so that you are only receiving critical alerts.  

Once you have done that, then you can start tuning your environment by creating overrides against certain alerts to tune their severity.  Keep in mind that severity is different from priority:


Severity

Critical = 2
Warning = 1
Information = 0
Priority

High = 2
Medium = 1
Low = 0

So for certain critical severity alerts that you don't want to see, you can create an override and change the severity level down to a Warning level (1) or Informational (0).  Please remember to store your overrides in custom management packs.  Never store your override in the default MP.
