SCOM SQL Agent Job Defaults

I’m working through implementing SCOM, specifically the SQL Server Management Packs. I’ve been tweaking and tuning and for the most part I’m really impressed with how MS configured the defaults. Until today. Since I’ve hit all the really big and important monitors & rules (at least the ones that have caused problems) I’m starting to drill down a bit. I just hit the Duration monitor for SQL Agent Jobs. The run time for a warning state is 1 minute and an error state in 2 minutes. OK. So any backup on a database over about 2gb in size is going to go into a warning state? I don’t think so. What the heck were these guys thinking of?

    Threshold for job duration monitor are in minute instead of seconds. do not get confused with that. so warning will be on 60 minutes and error on 120 minutes.
