SYS.VSSWriter is generating alerts in Messages.log


I've started seeing the following alerts in the message log of my Primary HealthConnect server

05/23/24-11:20:09:718 (6732) 2 [Utility.Event] Process 7248 generated 3 alerts in 10 seconds. Suspending alert notifications for this process.

Process 6732 corresponds to 

Process State: RUNW
Last Global Reference: ||ISC.BackupDBArray("USER")
Routine: SYS.VSSWriter.1
Location: VSS Writer
Source Location: +33^SYS.VSSWriter.1


What does this do? What I can I do to stop this?

I have found those two entries and they are less than two minutes apart.

I noticed that the following entries where sitting between them:

05/20/24-11:05:47:140 (7248) 1 [Utility.Event] Backup.General.ExternalFreeze: Warning, d:\intersystems\healthconnect\mgr\irislocaldata\ is not being journalled
05/20/24-11:05:47:140 (7248) 1 [Utility.Event] Backup.General.ExternalFreeze: Warning, d:\intersystems\healthconnect\mgr\hslib\ is not being journalled

I don't know why they weren't journalled, but when I set to be journalled, the error I initially reported has since disappeared.

Thanks for your comment, it help me solve my problem.
