Socorro: Mozilla’s Crash Reporting System

Laura just posted this fantastic article on the Mozilla WebDev blog talking about the past and future for Socorro.  It covers all the points that I was wanting to blog about here regarding what our integration of HBase brings to the table for Socorro.  Please, if you haven’t yet read that post, click the link.  I’ll wait…

Okay.  So now you know why I’m so excited about HBase.  We are going to be storing a non-trivial amount of information with it.  We are going to be doing some really interesting Map/Reduce work both as part of minidump stackwalk processing and as an end-user oriented ad-hoc query mechanism.  Socorro 2.0 should be delivering a brave new world of features to the developers tasked with using crash reports to hunt and squash bugs in Firefox 4.
