Create a diagnostic package

To help the support team diagnose an issue, you can send them a diagnostic package containing debug information for either the Deep Security Manager or for individual agents.

You can create a diagnostic package for an individual agent from the Deep Security Manager or directly from the agent if the Deep Security Manager cannot reach it remotely.

For Linux-specific information on increasing or decreasing the anti-malware debug logging for the diagnostic package, see Increase debug logging for anti-malware in protected Linux instances.

  • Click Administration > System Information > Create Diagnostic Package.

The package will take several minutes to create. After the package has been generated, a summary will be displayed and your browser will download a ZIP file containing the diagnostic package.

Create a diagnostic package for an agent

You can create a package for an individual agent from the Deep Security Manager or from the agent directly.

The Deep Security Manager must be able to connect to an agent remotely to create a diagnostic package for it. If the Deep Security Manager cannot reach the agent remotely, or if the agent is using agent-initiated activation, you must create the diagnostic package directly from the agent.
