    Tip:

    Execute ./dtascli for help.

    • File: Execute ./dtascli -u to upload all of the files in the work/indir folder to Virtual Analyzer.

      After executing ./dtascli -u, terminal shows all of the files that were uploaded from the work/indir folder.

    • URL list: Execute ./dtascli -u --url to upload the file url.txt in the work/indir folder to Virtual Analyzer.

      After executing ./dtascli -u --url, terminal shows all of the files that were uploaded from the work/indir folder.

      Note:

      The URL list must use the name URL.txt.

      Before submission, Deep Discovery Analyzer normalizes all occurrences of the following:

      • Punycode for URL domains

      • URL encoding for URL paths and query strings

  6. After uploading the files to Virtual Analyzer, confirm that they are being analyzed in the management console. Click Virtual Analyzer > Submissions to locate the files.

    Shortly after submitting the files, before they have been analyzed, they appear in the Processing or Queued tab. When the samples have been analyzed, they appear in the Completed tab. If the samples encountered errors during analysis, they appear in the Unsuccessful tab.
