In Vityl Monitor Configuration, you can create filter rules to limit the IT Resources that are added to a Vityl Monitor database from performance databases referenced in the Vityl Monitor database.

You can create filter rules in the IT Resource Filter field in Vityl Monitor Database Settings.

The following examples show how to create rules that filter IT Resources from performance databases that are referenced in Vityl Monitor databases.

Example 1

The following filter rules limit the IT Resources to those with aix in the system name:

/TeamQuest
/TeamQuest/System
/TeamQuest/System/.*aix.*

This example returns IT Resources that have aix in the system name and the children of the systems that have aix in the system name.

Include filter rules for the parent IT Resources. For example, no IT Resources are included if the only rule provided is the third rule (/TeamQuest/System/.*aix.*).

Example 2

The following filter rules exclude individual workload IT Resources and include all other IT Resources from the Vityl Monitor database:

!/TeamQuest/System/.*/Workload/.*/.*
.*

IT Resource filter rules are evaluated in the order that they are listed. Each IT Resource is evaluated against each filter rule starting with the first rule. The evaluation process stops as soon as a rule is satisfied. In this example, the first rule (!/TeamQuest/System/.*/Workload/.*/.*) excludes individual workloads and workload sets. The second rule (.*) includes all other IT Resources.

Typically, you should specify an exclusion rule followed by an inclusion rule. If you do not specify an inclusion rule, IT Resources are not included in the Vityl Monitor database. IT Resources not explicitly excluded are not automatically included unless they match a subsequent inclusion rule.

Example 3

The following filter rules exclude the workload sets and individual workloads:

!/TeamQuest/System/.*/Workload.*
.*

These filter rules exclude workload-related IT Resources and include all other IT Resources.

To exclude everything related to an IT Resource, you need to explicitly specify what to exclude. In the following example, the below filter excludes CLW22X64 from the IT Resource tree and the database, as well as its children or tables to the 4th level.

!/TeamQuest/System/CLW22X64
!/TeamQuest/System/CLW22X64/.*
!/TeamQuest/System/CLW22X64/.*/.*
!/TeamQuest/System/CLW22X64/.*/.*/.*

Otherwise, although hidden from the user interface, the tables still exist internally.

You need to specify lines similar to the above example for each system that you want to filter from the tree.
