Chapter 8. Reporting Client Software Failures

You can take advantage of Red Hat Satellite's software failure reporting capabilities and the Automatic Bug Reporting Tool (ABRT) to extend the overall reporting functionality of your systems. This extended functionality allows your clients to automatically report software failures captured by ABRT to the Satellite server, and also to process the captured failures in a centralized fashion. You can use either the webUI or the API to process these failure reports.
For information about setting up Red Hat Satellite tools for ABRT on client systems, see the Red Hat Satellite Client Configuration Guide.
