NAME
abrtd - automated bug reporting tool's daemon. SYNOPSIS
abrtd [-dsv[v]...] DESCRIPTION
abrtd is a daemon that watches for application crashes. When a crash occurs, it collects the problem data (core file, application's command line etc.) and takes action according to the type of application that crashed and according to the configuration in the abrt.conf config file. There are plugins for various actions: for example to report the crash to Bugzilla, to mail the report, or to transfer the report via FTP or SCP. See the manual pages for the respective plugins. OPTIONS
-v Log more detailed debugging information. -d Stay in the foreground and log to standard error. -s Log to system log even with option -d. -t NUM Exit after NUM seconds of inactivity. -p Add program names to log. CAVEATS
When you use some other crash-catching tool specific for an application or an application type (for example BugBuddy for GNOME applications), crashes of this type will be handled by that tool and not by abrtd. If you want abrtd to handle these crashes, turn off the higher-level crash-catching tool. AUTHORS

NAME
abrt.conf - Configuration file for abrt. DESCRIPTION
abrt is a daemon that watches for application crashes. When a crash occurs, it collects the problem data and takes action according to its configuration. This document describes abrt's configuration file. The configuration file consists of items in the format "Option = Value". A description of each item follows: DumpLocation = directory The directory where should abrt store coredumps and all files which are needed for reporting. The default is /var/tmp/abrt. MaxCrashReportsSize = number The maximum disk space (specified in megabytes) that abrt will use for all the crash dumps. Specify a value here to ensure that the crash dumps will not fill all available storage space. The default is 1000. WatchCrashdumpArchiveDir = directory The daemon will watch this directory and call abrt-handle-upload on files which appear there. This is used to auto-unpack crashdump tarballs uploaded via ftp, scp, etc. The directory must exist and be writable for abrt. There is no default. DeleteUploaded = yes/no The daemon will delete an uploaded crashdump archive after an atempt to unpack it. An archive will be delete whether unpacking finishes successfully or not. The default value is no. SEE ALSO
