Preventing indexing "not available files" (files with no data on disk but remoted wia HSM like mechanism)

I got a HSM like FS with files visible in the FS but the data are stored on tapes.
if the tracker tries to open the file it will kick a tape read, I don’t want this (think about TBs of files to read).
How can I prevent the indexing of this FS or not opening files with no data on disk ? (du=0)

A good way might be to create an empty file named .nomedia in each folder you want to exclude from indexing.

See for some more information.
