Location of crash report?

  • Is the crash report logged anywhere?

    My system crashed, all the configuration was lost.
    On the system monitor, after I selected the LAN/WAN ports, the system booted up and displayed the crash report, which was quite detailed.

    Is this report stored also?
    I just reverted back to a firmware version from a previous snapshot version, which restored the config also. Then I performed the latest update.

    If you are on a full install, it will save the crash report in /var/crash and offer to submit it via the GUI the next time you get in there.

    If it's on NanoBSD, there is no swap space in which to store the crash report so it is dumped to the terminal and then it automatically reboots.

  • When I first connected via the the webgui, it did ask me to submit it, I selected yes, but I wasn't online yet as I had to configure the WAN access again.

    That crash directory was empty, so maybe that report did get submitted after it got online again, or was it wiped when I performed a full restore?

    Not sure, it may have just been deleted if the initial submission had failed.

  • ok, thanks.
