A plethora of options are available for natively compiled languages suited for your environment.
coresnapAutomatically manages all core dumps on your Linux and FreeBSD systems, including archival, aggregation and analysis.
bcdA light-weight open-source library that allows you to invoke the Backtrace debugger and aggregator reliably when your application has errors.
ptraceA purpose-built debugger for UNIX and UNIX-like systems built from the ground-up for advanced analysis of application state during errors.
breakpad and crashpadPopular open-source libraries brought to you by Google for cross-platform crash reporting with minidump files.
jsonFor very small-form embedded devices, you may only have log files to go with. Translate your logs to JSON documents to turn them into actionable work with Backtrace.
Rich data. Backtrace provides accurate callstacks and extracts memory and variable values when possible to get you to the root cause faster. Static analysis highlights important clues.
Attachments. Our platform permits arbitrary assets to be associated with errors, including videos, screenshots, configuration files, logs and more.
Consolidation. Ensure your developers get to the root cause without the inefficiency of requesting more information from customers and other engineering teams.
Accurate, extensible and customizable deduplication. Errors are deduplicated by error location and attribute similarity so you quickly determine how many users and instances are impacted by issues across your environments.
Rich workflow integrations. Backtrace seamlessly integrates into your engineering pipeline with support for popular alerting, notification, issue tracking and collaboration tools.
Powerful query capabilities. Easily filter to, exclude, group and aggregate on any attributes you send along with your errors. Filter on function names, modules, graphics cards and more.
Dump and attachment storage. Dumps, attachments and any associated assets are stored and managed by fine-tuned retention policies so your engineers can download and view dumps in their favorite debugger.
Symbol server support. Backtrace integrates into popular symbol servers and allows you to point to your own symbol servers so you get accurate symbolification, all the time.
Debug information support. Backtrace has been tuned over the years with full support for DWARF and the proprietary PDB / CodeView file format. Backtrace is able to extract optimized call stacks that existing tooling cannot so you have the most accurate information.
Backtrace takes security seriously and ships with a myriad of security and privacy features, meeting or exceeding requirements for GDPR, SOC-2 and more.Learn more about security
