System Conﬁguration Repository provides nine default ﬁlters, the
collection ﬁlter, the template view ﬁlter and seven other pre-deﬁned
view ﬁlters. User-deﬁned view ﬁlters can be created by copying the
template or another view ﬁlter and modifying it. Filter names must be
alphanumeric without white space or tabulation.
The ﬁlter names Probe and Template are reserved. Operations to
remove or rename both ﬁlters are prohibited. The seven other
pre-deﬁned view ﬁlters can be removed or renamed like user-deﬁned
Disk, FileSystem, LVM, Network, Patch, Software and
SystemProperty: These are examples of view ﬁlter. These are free to
DMI deﬁnes hierarchical data levels: component, group, and attribute
(in the order of high to low level). If view or collection ﬂags are set
different among these levels, the value off for higher data has
precedence over the value on for lower data to display or collect the
lower data. For example, if the component is set off and group is set on,
the group is not displayed or collected.
Filter data version is unexpected.
Collection ﬁlter used by scrupdate command.
Customers are recommended not to modify these
settings. The collection ﬁlter disables by default
"dynamic information", such as system date, number of
processes in DMTF UNIX standard MIF. Enabling
these attributes greatly increases the disk space
consumed by SCR. This ﬁlter is prohibited from
removing and renaming by -d and -m options.
Read only template view ﬁlter. The ﬁlter can be used to
generate new ﬁlters. It is prohibited to modify the ﬁlter
by -d, -i, -m, -o, -s, -S, and -u options.
modify, rename and remove like user-deﬁned view
If all view or collection ﬂags for target and higher data are on, then
target data is displayed or collected.
If some view or collection ﬂags for target or higher data are off, the
target data is not displayed or collected.
