Errors were observed occurring during particular time of the day same time for specific instances 

This is most likely a environment /network issue 

Suggested workaround is to use the sybase probe scheduling option to exclude probe operation around the time of the error/alert till the environment issue is isolated /rectified on the the check_dbalive checkpoint in the profile

This can be set on profile/instance level 

Configure Schedules

The sybase probe functionality will also be enhanced to handle these type of errors in upcoming probe releases
