Mozilla Socorro: an Open Source crash reporting system evolves.

Socorro collects and analyzes three million crash reports a day employing PostgreSQL, HBase, Hadoop, and ElasticSearch glued together with Python. Socorro's data analysis drives the stability and development priorities of Firefox. Five years ago, Socorro was a system that ran on three machines and was tended by just one person. In 2013, it has evolved to become a distributed system running on 120 machines and serving hundreds of terabytes of data. Meanwhile, companies all over the world are adopting Socorro for crash reporting. This talk, an update of one given several years ago, will track the evolution of Socorro and its future in the upcoming world of FirefoxOS.

K Lars Lohn is the Herd Patriarch of the Mozilla WebTools Group. As the author and curator of the Mozilla Socorro Crash Reporting System, Lars has driven its evolution. Formerly with the OSUOSL, Lars telecommutes for Mozilla from a farm near Corvallis. While preferring Python, PostgreSQL and Harleys, Lars is versed in C++, MySQL and Subarus.
