Crash reporting is used to automatically monitor and report on traditional Red Hat clients that have experienced a crash.
Clients that have crash reporting enabled report any crashes to the SUSE Manager Server. This allows you to see what crashes have occurred, manage crash reports, and add custom notes to crashes from within the SUSE Manager Web UI. You can also run reports on crashes.
Crash reporting works only with traditional Red Hat clients. It does not work with Salt clients, or with traditional clients running any other operating system.
Crash reporting requires the
spacewalk-abrt package installed on the client you want to monitor.
To manage crash reports in the Web UI, navigate to .
You can create custom notes for each crash report using the SUSE Manager Web UI.

Managing Crash Reports with the API
Use these API calls to manage reported software crashes:
system.crash.getLastReportDate() system.crash.getUniqueCrashCount() system.crash.getTotalCrashCount() system.crash.listSystemCrashes() system.crash.listSystemCrashFiles() system.crash.deleteCrash() system.crash.getCrashFileUrl() system.crash.getCrashFile()
Use these API calls to manage notes on crashes:
system.crash.createCrashNote() system.crash.deleteCrashNote() system.crash.getCrashNotesForCrash()
Use these API calls to manage organization settings for crash reporting:
org.getCrashFileSizeLimit() org.setCrashFileSizeLimit() org.isCrashReportingEnabled() org.setCrashReporting() org.isCrashfileUploadEnabled() org.setCrashfileUpload()
For more information about the API, see the latest API documentation available from https://documentation.suse.com/suma.
