Configuring Filters for IBM Spectrum Scale (GPFS)

Prior to archiving or backing up the files, you can set filters to prevent specific type of files from being archived or backed up. Filters can also be used to exclude certain system-related files and database application files which consistently fail during an archive or backup operation and are not integral to the operation of the system or application.

See Content, Filters, and Regular Expressions for comprehensive information on filtering data from backup.
