File Activity [8003] events are no longer sent by Mac agents. 


SEP 14.3 RU6 and later
EDR 4.8 and earlier
Mac Agent


Ongoing changes to operating systems and security technologies require ongoing tuning to how Broadcom handles incoming event volumes. File events are now remaining in the local event store. A new feature in Symantec Endpoint Security (SES) for August is the ability to request and upload Full Dumps for Mac agents. Customers who have not migrated to Symantec Endpoint Security will have new features in EDR 4.9, allowing Full Dumps for Mac agents.


  • For SES, use the Full Dump feature from the cloud console to review File Activity events for Mac agents.
  • For on-prem SEPM configured Mac agents, please look for the Full Dump feature in an upcoming release of EDR.
