5.4. Creating Software Failures for Testing

You can force a software failure in order to verify that your reporting configuration is working properly. The following example demonstrates using the kill command to send a signal 11 argument (segmentation fault) to an example process:
# abrt-cli list
# sleep 600 &
[1] 17564
# kill -11 17564
#
[1]+  Segmentation fault      (core dumped) sleep 600
#
# abrt-cli list
@0
