Does/can VMTurbo rightsizing respect application minimum resource requirements?

Say I have a VM that is rarely used, maybe it's used to run some reports at the end of every month, but those reports are resource intensive and the minimum hardware requirement is 6G of RAM and 6 vCPU. Since 29 days out of the month it receives almost no traffic will I get downsizing recommendations? After several months will VMTurbo recognize the usage pattern and stop recommending I downsize the VM?



Can I set a threshold somewhere so that I only get downsizing recommendations if a vm is over provisioned by a %? Is the best, or only, solution for preventing certain VMs from being rightsized creating a group and disabling the rightsize action?
