Diagnostic Tool

The Diagnostic Tool is designed to aid troubleshooting McAfee DLP Endpoint problems on Microsoft Windows endpoint computers. It is not supported on OS X computers.

The Diagnostic Tool gathers information on the performance of client software. The IT team uses this information to troubleshoot problems and tune policies. When severe problems exist, it can be used to collect data for analysis by the McAfee DLP development team.

The tool is installed with the McAfee DLP Endpoint client software package. It consists of seven tabbed pages, each devoted to a different aspect of McAfee DLP Endpoint software operation.

Note: On all pages displaying information in tables (all pages except General information and Tools), you can sort the tables on any column by clicking the column header.
General information Collects data such as whether the agent processes and drivers are running and general policy, agent, and logging information. Where an error is detected, information about the error is presented.
DLPE Modules Displays the agent configuration (as shown in the McAfee DLP Endpoint policy console as the Agent ConfigurationMiscellaneous page). It shows the configuration setting and status of each module, add-in, and handler. Selecting a module displays details that can help you determine problems.
