[hobbit] Hobbit question for delaying warnings

Thanks for the suggestion David Gilmore, but Larry Barber is right, it will
only delay the emails or pages.
The noprod will just stop it completely from showing up on the non-green
page, I want it to show up only if the warning (red or yellow) is present
for x number of minutes.  I will look into the badtest to see if that can

My thresholds are at 85 and 90, and I do not want to adjust it because it is
the 5 minute spikes in the mem usage that are showing up and it varies from
yellow to red (86% to 98%).

I will stop blabbing now...

Thanks again,
Much appreciated for the suggestions.

Is the memory utilization hovering around the memory threshold?  If so, 
just adjust your threshold.

Other than that I don't know of anything that specifically does what you 
want.  You might want to take a look at NOPROPYELLOW or badTEST on the 
bb-hosts man page.  They may be of some help.
