How can I reduce the functionality of Software Inventory for Unix?

Answer
As of version 6.2, the only way to reduce the size of software inventory for Unix/Linux is:

 

  1. Add paths to the "ignore these directories" in the Inventory Agent Configuration settings;
  2. Add file systems to the "File systems not permitted in Scan" settings the Inventory Agent Configuration settings
  3. Modify the settings for "Max directories in recursion" and "Max subitems in directory" and directories to include the Inventory Agent
    Configuration settings;
  4. Ensure that the option "Show only products Found" is checked the Inventory Agent Configuration settings.
  5. Remove entries from the filescan.rule file

Additional functionality may be forthcoming in version 7.0.
