I don't think that can be done today without an external script, but it
would be a very cool feature to have.

Subject: [mrtg] threshold alerts

I only recently became aware of the ability of MRTG to alert when a
threshold is reached.   I love this feature!   But,  I have some
instances where it is less than optimal and I wonder if there is a
I have a number of T1s which will occasionally peak to 80-85%, even
though they normally run at about 25% utilization.    The peaks do not
last more than a single cycle of MRTG polling and so I would like to
ignore these.  I currently have this set to email when a threshold is
reached.  I would like to generate an alert only if a threshold of say
70 or 80% continues to be broken across multiply MRTG polling cycles.
Is this possible?  Do I need to use an external script to manage this or
is there another way?
