Filtering filesystem metrics

Configure your engine to exclude metrics for given filesystems such as a virtual or a pseudo filesystem.

Before you begin

  • Talend Remote Engine version must be 2.12.4 and onwards.

    For earlier versions, metrics of all types of filesystems are collected. Filtering is not possible.

About this task

Do the following to specify the filesystems for which you need metrics.


  1. Stop the engine.
  2. Open the <RemoteEngineInstallationDirectory>/etc/org.talend.observability.collector.oshi.cfg file to edit it.
  3. Find the file.system.stores.exclusion parameter and add the filesystem names to be excluded from metrics collection.



    Note that the label field in the metrics of a filesystem contains the label you assigned to your filesystem, depending on how this is allowed by your OS; it is empty if no label has been assigned and does not impact the metrics.

  4. Save the file.
  5. Restart the engine.
