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 abrts 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/spool/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.
