Expected State

You can override the evaluation of the current state by setting an Expected State for the Resource. For example, The SQL Monitoring Agent returns a SQL Job that is currently disabled. By design and normally this would render a Warning. By setting the Expected State for Warning to OK the alert will be suppressed and displayed as being OK with the addition of a small colored circle. The latter indicates "We hear you - but hey, there's something strange going on here".
