The PATROL Agent Configuration Variables disabledKMs and disabledKMsArch support three types of filters:
- Positive — is inclusive; the filter selects only those entities that match an item in the list
- Negative — is exclusive; the filter rejects those items that match an item in the list
- Implicit — is associative; the filter selects or rejects items because the group or subset that the items belong to is selected or rejected; it consists of the opposite of the explicit. For example, if in the disabledKMs variable you explicitly enter !NT/NT_CPU, which translates to "do not disable NT_CPU on NT systems," you implicitly state disable NT_CPU on all other systems, such as HP, AIX.
