SysInspector Log Request (Windows only)

The SysInspector Log Request task is used to request the SysInspector log from a client security product.


ESET SysInspector runs only on Windows computers.

Select one of the following options to create a new Client Task:

Click Tasks > New > add_new_defaultClient Task.

Click Tasks > select the desired task type and click New > add_new_defaultClient Task.

Click the target device in Computers and select icon_tasks Tasks > add_new_defaultNew Task. You can run this task also from Computers > click a computer > Details > Logs > Request Log (Windows only).


In the Basic section, type basic information about the task, such as a Name and Description (optional). Click Select tags to assign tags.
In the Task drop-down menu, select the task type you want to create and configure. If you have selected a specific task type before creating a new task, Task is pre-selected based on your previous choice. Task (see the list of all Tasks) defines the settings and the behavior for the task.


Store log on client - Select this if you want to store the SysInspector log on the client as well as on ESET PROTECT Server. For example, when a client has ESET Endpoint Security installed, the log is usually stored under C:\Program Data\ESET\ESET Security\SysInspector.


Review the summary of configured settings and click Finish. The Client Task is now created, and a small window will open:

Click Create Trigger (recommended) to specify Client Task Targets (computers or groups) and the Trigger.

If you click Close, you can create a Trigger later—Click the Client Task instance and select restart_default Run on from the drop-down menu.


You can see the progress indicator bar, status icon and details for each created task in Tasks.

After the task completes, a new entry appears in the list of ESET SysInspector logs. Click a log in the list to explore it.
