ActionEraLogs - A logs folder is created where all logs are saved. To specify certain logs only, use a space to separate each log.

ActionGetDumps - A new folder is created. A process dump file is generally created if a problem was detected. When a serious problem is detected, a dump file is created by system. To check it manually, go to the folder %temp% (in Windows) or folder /tmp/ (in Linux) and insert a dmp file.


The component service (Agent, Server, RD Sensor) must be running.

ActionGeneralApplicationInformation - The GeneralApplicationInformation folder is created and inside it the file GeneralApplicationInformation.txt. This file contains text information including the product name and product version of the currently installed product.

ActionConfiguration - A configuration folder is created where file storage.lua is saved.
