Dump files are generated if the application fails and include all the data that the working memory of Kaspersky Endpoint Security process contained at the time a dump file is created. If necessary, you can disable the creation of dump files.

Dump files are stored on the computer as long as the application is in use, and are deleted permanently when the application is removed. Dump files are not sent to Kaspersky automatically.

Dump files may contain personal data. It is recommended to protect information from unauthorized access before sending it to Kaspersky.

Dump files are stored in the /var/opt/kaspersky/kesl/common/dumps and /var/opt/kaspersky/kesl/common/dumps-user directories. Root privileges are required to access dump files.

To disable creation of dump files:

  1. Stop Kaspersky Endpoint Security.
  2. Open the /var/opt/kaspersky/kesl/common/kesl.ini file for editing.
  3. Add the following setting to the [General] section:


  4. Start Kaspersky Endpoint Security.
