Linux monitors: prevent autoadding "disks"


Is there a way we can prevent linux monitors from auto adding mounts to monitor?
Example: if you mount an nfs share for restoring a backup, this share will be autoadded by the agent and monitored. When you dismount this share later, then the monitor will go into alarm because the disk is no longer available.

Yes, we can prevent disks from getting auto-added using configuration rules.

Kindly refer to the Exclude Disk Partitions section here.

Im looking for something else. We dont know what kind of mounts will show up on a given server so there is no way of creating an exclude rule. I want the ability to turn off auto-discovery of disks after initial scanning by the agent. Then we could always run a "re-scan" if we know a server disk layout has changed. 

As i mentioned in my example there can be nfs mounts coming and going, lvm volumes created and deleted.. All this creates a lot of extra work keeping site24 monitoring clean.
