In the objects tree of the device, select the application for which you want to enable tracing.
Tracing can be enabled and disabled for applications with self-defense only if the device is connected using Administration Server tools.
If you want to enable tracing for Network Agent, you can also do it while creating the Install required updates and fix vulnerabilities task. In this case, Network Agent will write the tracing information even if tracing is disabled for Network Agent in the remote diagnostics utility.
To enable tracing:
In the left part of the remote diagnostics utility window, click Enable tracing.
In the Select tracing level window that opens, we recommend that you keep the default values of the settings. When required, a Technical Support specialist will guide you through the configuration process. The following settings are available:
The application overwrites the tracing information to prevent excessive increase in the size of the trace file. Specify the maximum number of files to be used to store the tracing information, and the maximum size of each file. If the maximum number of trace files of the maximum size are written, the oldest trace file is deleted so that a new trace file can be written.
For Kaspersky Endpoint Security, a Technical Support specialist may ask you to enable Xperf tracing for information about the system performance.
To enable Xperf tracing:
In the left part of the remote diagnostics utility window, click Enable Xperf tracing.
In the Select tracing level window that opens, depending on the request from the Technical Support specialist, select one of the following tracing levels:
A trace file of this type contains more detailed information than trace files of the Light type and may be requested by Technical Support specialists when a trace file of the Light type is not enough for the performance evaluation. A Deep trace file contains technical information about the system including information about hardware, operating system, list of started and finished processes and applications, events used for performance evaluation, and events from Windows System Assessment Tool.
The tracing information is received when the operating system starts on the managed device. This tracing type is effective when the issue that affects the system performance occurs after the device is turned on and before Kaspersky Endpoint Security starts.
You may also be asked to enable the Rotation-based tracing option to prevent excessive increase in the size of the trace file. Then specify the maximum size of the trace file. When the file reaches the maximum size, the oldest tracing information is overwritten with new information.
In some cases, the security application and its task must be restarted in order to enable tracing.
The remote diagnostics utility enables tracing for the selected application.
