Observe mode for Linux and performance impacted


I would like to know when there is no Observe mode for Linux, how the process should go for qualification? 

Also when i installed only MAC in a linux machine just with McAfee agent there is a performance spike. 

Is there an order where we can do the qualification in realtime? 

Like which mode it should be at first and which mode to move next? 

Any help here is much appreciated!

Re: Observe mode for Linux and performance impacted

1. Not sure i follow your question. What do you mean how the process should go for qualification? 

Every binary goes through our typical order of execution... 

Can you please explain in detail more information about this question?


2. What MA and Version of solidcore and what process is spiking?

3. Not sure i follow your question about Qualification in realtime? Do you mean view events?


1. Update mode should be first, enable mode should be second


Observe mode has been in linux since 6.2.0-187 - So you can see my confusion to your questions.
