How to configure an alert to only send alert emails during certain hours of the day?

New Member

I have an email alert setup to send an email whenever anyone connects to a certain device via ssh. Is there a way to set up the alert so I am not alerted if the ssh connection is between the hours of 23:00 and 01:00, but am alerted the other 22 hours of the day?

Perhaps you could use cron to schedule the alert so it only runs 0100-2300. Something like 0 1-23 * * *.

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
