Diagnostics

Diagnostics provides application crash dumps of ESET processes (for example, ekrn). If an application crashes, a dump will be generated. This can help developers debug and fix various ESET NOD32 Antivirus problems. Click the drop-down menu next to Dump type and select one of three available options:

Select Disable (default) to disable this feature.

Mini – Records the smallest set of useful information that may help identify why the application crashed unexpectedly. This kind of dump file can be useful when space is limited, however because of the limited information included, errors that were not directly caused by the thread that was running at the time of the problem may not be discovered by an analysis of this file.

Full – Records all the contents of system memory when the application stops unexpectedly. A complete memory dump may contain data from processes that were running when the memory dump was collected.

Enable Protocol filtering advanced logging – Record all data passing through the Protocol filtering engine in PCAP format in order to help the developers diagnose and fix the problems related to Protocol filtering.

Enable Update engine advanced logging – Record all events that occur during update process. This can help developers diagnose and fix problems related to the Update engine.

Enable Licensing advanced  logging – Record all product communication with license server.

Enable Anti-Theft engine advanced logging – Record all events that occur in Anti-Theft to allow diagnosing and solving problems.

Enable Antispam engine advanced logging – Record all events that occur during antispam scanning. This can help developers to diagnose and fix problems related to ESET Antispam engine.

Enable Operating System advanced logging – Additional information about Operating system such as running processes, CPU activity, disc operations will be gathered. This can help developers to diagnose and fix problems related to ESET product running on your operating system (available for Windows 10).

Log files can be found in:
C:\ProgramData\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus\Diagnostics\ in Windows Vista and later or C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\... in earlier versions of Windows.

Target directory – Directory where the dump during the crash will be generated.

Open diagnostics folder – Click Open to open this directory in a new Windows explorer window.
