Thanks for the comments.
We have toyed with the idea of adding a "wakeMeIfThisHappensTooOften" method to the logger to cater for that use case. The hard question is what means "too often".
In practice we have found that most times the places have this use case are protected by a circuit breaker so monitoring the circuit breaker is enough.
I would avoid having that couple of alerts every day if they are systematically ignored. One day they are two, next day they are four, ... One of the last projects that I worked at ended up with 13000 of those alerts which prompted me to write this blog post
