Whenever there're processes using too much CPU, we get an email alert with this Subject:

Apparently, the alert comes from dbmsrv service (https://docs.oracle.com/en/engineered-systems/exadata-database-machine/dbmmn/exadata-general-maintenance.html#GUID-1D429217-461E-4FA1-88BB-5137339C39CC). Is there a command in dbmcli to disable individual process CPU usage alert? The server has lots of CPUs. We don't care about a dozen processes consuming 100% CPU because the system load is still moderate.
