Socorro: March 2019 happenings

Summary

Socorro is the crash ingestion pipeline for Mozilla's products like Firefox. When Firefox crashes, the crash reporter collects data about the crash, generates a crash report, and submits that report to Socorro. Socorro saves the crash report, processes it, and provides an interface for aggregating, searching, and looking at crash reports.

This blog post summarizes Socorro activities in March.

Highlights of March

  • Pub/Sub migration

    • Changed the collector, processor, and webapp to use Google Cloud Platform Pub/Sub instead of RabbitMQ for queuing for crash processing ([bug 1527343], [bug 1527346], [bug 1527345])

      This is on stage, but will go to prod very soon.

  • Development and infrastructure-related changes

    • Redo tests and configuration in Antenna to match Socorro ([bug 1531865])
    • Update Docker image in CI. ([bug 1540248])
    • Update base Docker image for all containers. ([bug 1539272])
    • Rewrite archivescraper to use multi-processing which makes it SOOOOO much faster. ([bug 1536147])
  • Upgraded dependencies
