The following changes have been made to the Cb Response Server Configuration (cb.conf) Guide for this release:

  • Added the following settings for enabling sensor throttling [CB-16949]:
  • Added the setting EventExclusionsEnabled, which enables a console feature that allows you to exclude collection of certain process events from macOS/OS X hosts based on the path of the parent process. This is not a new feature but was not documented in previous guides. [CB-17553, CB-17587]
  • Other minor corrections and improvements were made throughout.

The following changes have been made in the June 2018 version of this document:

  • Added missing BanningEnabled setting on p. 76.
  • Other minor corrections and edits.

A quick diff between the 6.2.2 cb.conf guide and the Cb supplied cb.conf shows about 13 or so undocumented settings.  In addition are the following that are more common and probably should be documented in this guide for consistency:

CurrentEventsSchema (used for advanced command line tokenization and is documented in the User Guide)

SessionTimeout (UI user timeout measured in seconds?)
