abrt: Configuration file for abrt.


abrt.conf - Configuration file for abrt.


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.
