Information

 
TitleHow to exclude a server or services from Purview data.
Objective
To filter out certain IP addresses or protocols from being reported in Purview
Environment
  • Netsight Oneview
  • Netsight Purview
Procedure
1.  From Oneview->Applications->Purview Appliance->Configuration->Configuration Properties

       Below we have two servers we wish to exclude, as they are SNMP monitoring devices, and not valuable to report on to customer.

        The IP addresses are 10.1.2.3 and 10.4.5.6

2.  Click on Add, give it a name, then insert the value, as shown below. No spaces between the excludes, but a comma, and a semicolon between the devices themselves.
The name field cannot be arbitrary and should be exact, the screenshot is just an ex


Name: options.FlowServerOptions.flowCollectorFilter
Value: sip=10.1.2.3,exclude;sip=10.4.5.6,exclude;

3. After this is complete, the Purview appliance must be enforced via Oneview to take affect.
    For details on how to Enforce an appliance see How to Enforce a Purview Appliance
Additional notes
Append the same filter value to add additional filters.

Example:
Name: options.FlowServerOptions.flowCollectorFilter
Value: sip=10.1.2.3,exclude;sip=10.4.5.6,exclude;proto=1,exclude;

Proto 1 is the protocol number for ICMP
The values for different protocols are available in this link.
