This tool runs gdb(1) on a file named coredump in problem directory DIR. gdb(1) generates backtrace and other diagnostic information about the state of the application at the moment when coredump was generated. Then the tool saves it as new element backtrace in this problem directory.
abrt-action-generate-backtrace can be used as an analyzer for application crashes which dump core.
Example usage in report_event.conf:
EVENT=analyze analyzer=CCpp abrt-action-generate-backtrace
