The FilterEntry Is an object type which basically defines " a set of parameters for a packet filter applied on a particular interface, which is also restrict the scan only for limited entries, making scanning more customized, narrower, and faster.
For example, an instance of the filterPktData object might be named filterPktData.12".Other properties of the object include Access: non-accessible status: mandatory as described in the RFC 1757.
FilterEntry is designed for advanced users, which is suitable for them to search only for those types of entries. Moreover, the advanced users may have a blacklist of applications/programs which they have installed/un-installed from the system. If the system performance reduces, the users can search only for those entries which are related to the black list applications/programs and remove those entries.
