Automatic Bug Reporting Tool

ABRT is a set of tools for detecting and reporting application crashes.
Crashes are automatically recognized and processed for later reporting and analysis.
This reporting can be automatic or users can add additional information and report it by our tools. Reports are collected, analyzed and aggregated providing valuable information for developers.

Retrace Server

Reporting users can send coredump for remote analysis and receive backtrace without a need to install debuginfo packages locally. This process is also integrated into automatic reporting.

This feature is not accessible through web UI.

Keeping your data

Your coredump is only kept on the server while the retrace job is running. Once the job is finished, the server keeps retrace log and backtrace. All the other data (including coredump) are deleted. The retrace log and backtrace are only accessible via unique task ID and password, thus no one (except the author) is allowed to view it. All the crash information (including backtrace) is deleted after 24 hours of inactivity. No possibly private data are kept on the server any longer.

Communicating with server

Your coredump is only used for retrace purposes. Server administrators are not trying to get your private data from coredumps or backtraces. Using a secure communication channel (HTTPS) is strictly recommended. Server administrators are not responsible for the problems related to the usage of an insecure channel (such as HTTP).
