What are your trigger conditions for the rule? Are they a simple count, or deviation from baseline? If so, you could try setting the rule to look for multiple occurrences in the last 30 minutes.

We've found this can substantially reduce the violations created by single spikes.


The process I go through for this is to look at each event, examine the data points in the metric browser that caused the event to trigger, and determine whether it was a true or false positive. From there I try to figure out a rule that wouldn't be triggered by the false positive. It can be a very iterative process....
