abrt-Mailx (7) - Linux Man Pages

NAME

Mailx plugin for abrt(8)

DESCRIPTION

abrt is a daemon that watches for application crashes. When a crash occurs, it collects the crash data and takes action according to its configuration. This manual page describes the Mailx plugin for abrt. This plugin is used to mail the data about the crash to a specified mail address.

INVOCATION

The plugin is invoked in the abrt.conf configuration file. It can take one parameter, a subject of the mail (if it differs from the one specified in the Mailx.conf configuration file).

CONFIGURATION

The Mailx.conf configuration file contains several entries in a format "Option = Value". The options are:

Subject

The subject of the mail.

Parameters

The Mailx plugin executes the external "mailx" command to send the mail. This option defines some additional command line parameters, which should be added to the program invocation, if any.

EmailFrom

The address from which the email is sent.

EmailTo

The address to which the email is sent.

SendBinaryData

Can be "yes" or "no". If set to "yes", the email will also contain the binary files associated with the crash. Warning: this can cause the emails to be large! (several MB)

EXAMPLES

These are snippets from the abrt.conf configuration file. 1) Each time a crash happens, a mail is sent

[common]
ActionsAndReporters = Mailx("[abrt] a crash occurs") 2) When a program in a specific package (in this case "httpd") crashes, send a mail about it.

[AnalyzerActionsAndReporters]
CCpp:httpd = Mailx("[abrt] Apache crash")
