Edit your etc/rancid.types.base file. You can remove the commands rancid gathers (like “dir nvram:”).

Subject: [rancid] Ignore flash changes in Cisco routers?

Hello everyone. I've recently upgraded some routers to Cisco ISR 4331's, and noticed I'm getting config diffs for flash memory changes, specifically related to the tracelogs. Here's an example:
- !Flash: bootflash: 98497  drwx             8192   Jun 2 2016 23:51:20 -05:00  tracelogs
+ !Flash: bootflash: 98497  drwx             8192   Jun 3 2016 05:48:55 -05:00  tracelogs

- !Flash: bootflash: 7397990400 bytes total (6595952640 bytes free)
+ !Flash: bootflash: 7397990400 bytes total (6595903488 bytes free)

Is there anywhere I can modify RANCID so it ignores these changes? Right now, it just clutters up my revisions needlessly.
