Troubleshooting Wonky Zabbix Reports

I rely on Zabbix to keep tabs on all of my machines and to make sure all of The Storehouse is working perfectly.  It’s always troubling to wake up to 30+ emails from Zabbix and is pretty good cause for alarm.  Turns out, these things were fairly innocuous and the sign of a pretty simple issue and related to the backup of that VM.  I’ll try to outline the steps I used to diagnose and lessons I learned along the way.
