Define Memory Dump Preferences

When a protected process crashes or terminates abnormally, Traps records information about the event including the contents of memory locations and other data about the event in what is known as a memory dump.
Create a forensics rule to determine how Traps manages process-related memory dumps including whether to send memory dumps automatically to the forensic folder or change the size of the memory dump, either small, medium, or full (the largest and most complete set of information).
  1. Configure a new forensics rule.
    Select
    Policies
    Forensics
    Management
    and then click
    Add
    .
  2. Define memory dump preferences when a prevention event occurs on the endpoint.
    1. Select
      Memory Dump
      and then select either of the following preferences:
      • Automatically send the memory dumps to the server by selecting
        Send the memory dumps automatically
        .
      • Specify the size of the memory dump file by selecting the
        Memory dump size
        option and then selecting
        Small
        ,
        Medium
        , or
        Full
        from the drop-down.
    2. Select the source processes from with Traps will collect memory dumps, either one or more
      Specific processes
      or
      All processes
      .
  3. (
    Optional
    ) Add Conditions to the rule. By default, a new rule does not contain any conditions.
    To specify a condition, select the
    Conditions
    tab, select the condition in the Conditions list, and then
    Add
    it to the Selected Conditions list. Repeat this step to add more conditions, as needed. You can also define new Conditions.
  4. (
    Optional
    ) Define the Target Objects to which to apply the rule.
    To define a smaller subset of target objects, select the
    Objects
    tab, and then enter one or more
    AD Users
    ,
    AD Computers
    ,
    AD Groups
    ,
    AD Organizational Unit
    ,
    Existing Endpoints
    , or
    Existing Groups
    in the Include or Exclude areas. The Endpoint Security Manager queries Active Directory to verify the users, computers, groups, or organizational units. The ESM Console also offers autocompletion as you type for existing endpoints and existing virtual groups.
  5. (
    Optional
    ) Review the rule name and description. The ESM Console automatically generates the rule name and description based on the rule details but permits you to change these fields, if needed.
    To override the autogenerated name, select the
    Name
    tab, clear the
    Activate automatic description
    option, and then enter a rule name and description of your choice.
  6. Save the forensics rule.
    Do either of the following:
    • Save
      the rule without activating it. This option is only available for inactive, cloned, or new rules. When you are ready to activate the rule, select the rule from the
      Policies
      Forensics
      Management
      page and then click
      Activate
      .
    • Apply
      the rule to activate it immediately.
    After saving or applying a rule, you can return to the
    Management
    page at any time to
    Delete
    or
    Deactivate
    the rule.
