East Asian locale settings

A defect in Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 causes problems with event processing when the probe is using East Asian character encoding and the volume of event data reaches 2GB.

If you are using East Asian locale settings (including Japanese, Chinese, and Korean), you must either enable UTF-8 mode in the probe or upgrade your .NET Framework installation on the probe's host machine to version 4.0.

Using UTF-8 encoding

To enable UTF-8 mode in the probe, set the generic -utf8enabled command line option to TRUE.

Note: If you enable UTF-8 mode, you must ensure that the probe configuration files are UTF-8 encoded.
