DiskPulse Server Disk Monitoring Rules

Sometimes, it may be required to monitor specific types of files while hiding changes detected in not important or temporary files. For example, the user may be interested to detect all changed programs and DLL libraries and hide all other file system changes. DiskPulse provides the ability to configure one or more file matching rules specifying which files to monitor. When one or more file matching rules are configured for a disk change monitoring command, DiskPulse will show files matching the rules and skip all other files.
