This task describes how to suspend process monitoring for a process instance.
Create a file ignore_ ProcessName and copy it to the designated flag file directory.
Flag files must be named ignore_ProcessName, where ProcessName is the monitored process name. When the flag file is found in the designated directory, BMC PATROL ignores alerts and events that are generated for the monitored process.
Flag files do not expire after a specified time period. You must manually remove flag files from the specified flag file directory before BMC PATROL will resume monitoring for a process presence instance.
