Breakpad Processor Design and Requirements

The processor takes the minidump and turns it into a stack. This doesn't need to be (probably shouldn't be) a web app, but a background daemon.

  • Requires read/delete access to the minidump store
  • read/write access to the database
  • Grab minidumps from the collector
  • Process minidumps
    • Extract info from the minidump
    • Map stack trace to symbol info from Symbols Store to decipher function names, file paths and line no.
    • Store crash information to Breakpad Database
