dcpiexclusions - DCPI DADD mode exclusions file format.
The dcpiexclusions file allows administrators who are running DCPI in DADD
mode to specify images and/or processes for which no samples are to be
collected. It is provided as a means to deal with memory consumption
problems arising from the need for the daemon to collect and retain samples
for long-running processes which may be of no interest to the DADD user. The
dcpiexclusions file is named "dcpiexclusions" and is stored in the
/usr/lib/dcpi directory. The syntax used to specify exclusions is as
DCPI/DADD is distributed with an initial dcpiexclusions file in
/usr/lib/dcpi. The distributed file contains one line with an entry
indicating that no samples should be collected for the DCPI daemon, dcpid.
Exclusions should be used carefully since it is possible to exclude
processes or images for which performance information is needed. The
dcpiexclusions file has no effect when DCPI is not run in DADD mode.
