NNM 7.53 and use of "filters" file

Hello,

 

I am very new to NNM and I am slotted to take the HP NNM administration class in May.  Our previous administrator retired and we have a "filters" file that is less than informational on why certain choices were made.  Does anyone have any good examples of their setup(don't discover printers, dont' discover certain domain,  don't discover names="pc*",  don't discover certain OIDs, etc.)?  Or can you point me to a good best practices document on the filters file?  Thank you in advance.
