Some web sites use plug-ins like Silverlight and Flash to process file uploads. In this case, the Firefox and Safari browsers use child processes to upload files. The Mac DLP Agent does not monitor these child processes by default. To ensure that the DLP Agent monitors these types of file uploads, you add the child process binary as an application to monitor on the Application Monitoring screen. You use the
dtrace command to identify these child processes.
Note: Refer to "Monitoring browser child processes" in the Symantec DLP Admin guide for more information.
To use the dtrace command to identify child processes:
Create a file on the endpoint where you plan to run the command. For example, create ABC.txt on the desktop.
