Upload Snapshots

Once the Snapshot completes the output needs to be uploaded to the remote Stardust system for analysis. The files can be somewhat large and is compressed as part of the Send command. The full signature of the Send-ComaeSnapshot command is as follows:

Send-ComaeSnapshot [-Key] <string> [-Path] <string> [-ItemType] <string>


  • Key parameter is the user access token generated through the platform to able the use of the API
  • Path is the input file or directory given the ItemType value.
  • ItemType can either be File or Directory

From the PowerShell session, execute the Send-ComaeSnapshot cmdlet with the following parameters, based on preference.

Send only the json file:

Send-ComaeSnapshot -Key $APIKey -Path "C:\Comae-Snapshots\" -ItemType "File"

Create the snapshot in the provided directory before sending it to the server.

Send-ComaeSnapshot -Key $APIKey -Path "C:\Comae-Snapshots" -ItemType "Directory"

For added privacy, instead of sending full memory of sending full memory snapshot to Stardust, the metadata archive (compressed .json files) can be sent. Typically used for hybrid-cloud models, the snapshot is pre-processed locally instead of relying completely on the Stardust platform for analysis.
