When configuring the File System Capacity monitor, you can have the monitor ignore or exclude certain drives or mount points. Below are some common usage examples:
Ignore a drive or file system by entering the name of the drive or file system in one of the Exclude Pattern fields of the monitor template. For example:
- On Windows, enter
D:in an Exclude Pattern field.
- On a UNIX platform, enter
/usrin an Exclude Pattern field.
Ignore a set of similar mount points by setting an exclusion pattern, using the
* character, to match multiple mount points. For example, on a UNIX platform, enter
/u* in an Exclude Pattern field to ignore all mounts starting with
u. Note that you can only use the
* character at the end of a mount point's name.
Check only a specific drive by setting an exclusion pattern to
*. This will ignore all drives. Enter special case values for only those drives that you want to check.
