In case of problems with Kaspersky Security Center, Technical Support specialists may request the application dump files for troubleshooting.

Dumps are located in one of the following directories by default:

  • %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Security Center\~dumps\
  • %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\KasperskyLab\adminkit\~dumps\

Dump files are generated in .DMP format. The file names may have different structures, but they always contain part which indicates connection to the Kaspersky Security Center component:

  • An Administration Server dump file contains “klserver” in its name. For example, “killed-klserver-3.dmp”.
  • An Administration Console dump file contains “kavmsnap”. For example, “killed-kavmsnap-1.dmp”.
  • A dump file for a Network Agent server-side component contains “klnagent”. For example, “KSCNAGENT.”.
