You can enable and disable tracing for applications, including Xperf tracing.

Enabling and disabling tracing

To enable or disable tracing on a remote device:

  1. Open the remote diagnostics window of a client device.
  2. In the remote diagnostics window, select the Kaspersky applications tab.

    In the Application management section, the list of Kaspersky applications installed on the device displays.

  3. In the application list, select the application for which you want to enable or disable tracing.

    The list of remote diagnostics options opens.

  4. If you want to enable tracing:
    1. In the Tracing section, click Enable tracing.
    2. In the Modify 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:
      • Tracing level
      • Rotation-based tracing

        This setting is available for Kaspersky Endpoint Security only.

    3. Click Save.

    The tracing is enabled for the selected application. In some cases, the security application and its task must be restarted in order to enable tracing.

    On Linux-based client devices, tracing for the Updater of Kaspersky Security Agent component is regulated by the Network Agent settings. Therefore, the Enable tracing and Modify tracing level options are disabled for this component on client devices running Linux.

  5. If you want to disable tracing for the selected application, click Disable tracing.

    The tracing is disabled for the selected application.

Enabling Xperf tracing

For Kaspersky Endpoint Security, a Technical Support specialist may ask you to enable Xperf tracing for information about the system performance.

To enable and configure Xperf tracing or disable it:

  1. Open the remote diagnostics window of a client device.
  2. In the remote diagnostics window, select the Kaspersky applications tab.

    In the Application management section, the list of Kaspersky applications installed on the device displays.

  3. In the list of applications, select Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows.

    The list of remote diagnostics options for Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows displays.

  4. In the Xperf tracing section, click Enable Xperf tracing.

    If Xperf tracing is already enabled, the Disable Xperf tracing button is displayed instead. Click this button if you want to disable Xperf tracing for Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows.

  5. In the Change Xperf tracing level window that opens, depending on the request from the Technical Support specialist, do the following:
    1. Select one of the following tracing levels:
      • Light level
      • Deep level
    2. Select one of the following Xperf tracing types:
      • Basic type
      • On-restart type

      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.

    3. Define the rotation file size.
    4. Click Save.

    Xperf tracing is enabled and configured.
