GLOBAL EXCLUSION LIST

 

Global Exclusion is the list of directories and files that need to be excluded from process and library monitoring for all profiles. To add or modify the global list, follow the steps below:

 

NOTE:

Once a file/directory is added to the exclusion list, all the current incidents related to this file/directory are automatically acknowledged. They are no longer visible as Incidents

 

  1. On the Host Monitoring page, click ALL PROFILES

  2. Select Exclusions List

  7. The added entries can be deleted if required

  8. Both global and profile exclusion lists are considered while creating new profile

  NOTE:

It is recommended that the Windows nativeimages libraries be added to the exclusion list using the regex: C:\\windows\\assembly\\nativeimages.* to avoid allowlisting each nativeimages library after incident detection
