      • Rotation-based tracing

        This setting is available for Kaspersky Endpoint Security only.

      You may also be asked to enable the Rotation file size, in MB 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.
