The following article:
Enabling User-Controlled Collection of Application Crash Data With DTrace
Describes AppCrash, which is a tool for automatic collection of diagnostic and debugging information when any application crashes on a Solaris system. It relies on DTrace; therefore it requires Solaris 10 or later.
AppCrash can help significantly reduce the costs of software defects by shortening the time needed to gather data necessary for application's customer support, quality assurance (QA), and development staff, as well as for Sun technical support engineers. This tool can be especially useful to track the specific details involved with sporadic, hard-to-reproduce application failures.
An important feature making the AppCrash method different from others is that the users (including the application developers and/or system administrators at user sites) can control precisely what data is collected and how it is processed. This allows collection of the necessary data without violating any of the users' security or privacy requirements.
