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 /usr in 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.
