Editing list to filter by application or regular expression

The /AgentSetup/application_name.filterList configuration variable lets you specify the set of application instances or regular expressions to include or exclude from monitoring, depending upon the type of filter.


"/AgentSetup/FILESYSTEM.filterList" ={REPLACE="root,us.,ora."}

Format and type of data

item_1,item_2,item_n, application instances or regular expressions

Default value


Minimum and maximum

Not applicable


/AgentSetup/application_name.filterType determines whether the items listed by this variable are monitored (included) or not (excluded).


Create a configuration variable of this type with a different application name for each application. Each .filterList needs a .filterType.

Valid application names are described in the KM reference manuals.
