Threshold Trigger - Can it be configured to run again every few minutes



The status trigger has the ability to run and notify via an email every XX minutes. I'm not seeing a place to configure that when using a Threshold trigger on a memory sensor. The problem that causes us is on our memory sensor for our DB servers. The sensor is configured to send email notification if the sensor is below a threshold of 3000 seconds (5 minutes) when memory is below 5%. In the scenario today, the threshold sensor triggered at 3:36 am because memory dropped to 3% available memory and an email was sent. (which is good, yesterday, I didn't think that was working either), and it's been below 5% memory since 3:36 am. (approximately 6 hours) Is there a way for the sensor to send us notification every XX minutes as it does in the status trigger (up / down)? I may miss the single email that was sent at 3:36 am because we're all sleeping. I want the trigger to keep notifiying us that is below the 5% threshold that's been configured.

Or, if you've got another way of achieving this, please let me know.

the idea here is to use limits, so that the channel goes into the yellow, or red status, and then adding a state trigger.
