Spec changes made related to posting time and posting interval for check monitoring results.

A lot of our users are using plugins to perform check monitoring for Mackerel.

mackerel.io

These check monitoring results are sent to Mackerel together with a timestamp of when the check process was performed, then an alert is issued according to those results. Up until now, this was handled the same way regardless of how much time had passed. Now, specifications have been changed so that this function is only available up to 6 hours.

In addition to this, you also have maxCheckAttemps, which sets the maximum number of attempts as a mackerel-agent option for check monitoring. However, specifications have been changed so that the range for evaluating this is within 6 hours. (The previous range was within 1 hour.)
