Settings for

The software modules that generate statistics data. Optionally, you can select Pattern Match to define a file pattern that should apply to the statistics data settings.

If you do use directory patterns, make sure that they do not interfere with the module settings. For a specific data type, use EITHER the module OR directory pattern settings. The dstats service works through the configured instances successively and omits directory patterns that apply to directories that have already been processed. Additionally, for clearly arranged management, place directory patterns at the end of the configuration file.

Directory Pattern

Pattern-Match settings apply to statistics files that are available in the sub-folders of /var/phion/stat. You can specify patterns by either entering full folder names or wildcards (? and *). The question mark wildcard (?) indicates a single character, and the asterisk wildcard (*) indicates an arbitrary number of characters.
