5.2. Using Software Failure Reporting Tools

The spacewalk-abrt package has two important components:
  • The configuration file for ABRT: /etc/libreport/events.d/spacewalk.conf
  • The spacewalk-abrt utility: /usr/bin/spacewalk-abrt
The configuration file instructs the abrt daemon to use the /usr/bin/spacewalk-abrt utility to automatically report every software failure that occurs on the system to your Satellite server. This is a fully automated process and ordinarily does not require any human intervention.
Use the Red Hat Satellite Web UI to view software failure reports from clients. For more information, see the Red Hat Satellite User Guide.
