Signature change for crashes with ipc_message_error


(Socorro :: General, task)

Not set


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: benjamin, Assigned: adrian)



User Story

* If the annotation "ipc_channel_error" is present:
** If the crash contains additional_minidumps=browser, the crash report signature shall be "IPCError-browser | " + ipc_channel_error[:100]
** Otherwise, the crash report signature shall be "IPCError-content | " + ipc_channel_error[:100]

Content processes which are intentionally killed by the chrome process because of a processing error should have a signature which is distinct from a normal crash.

Examples of crashes that this may affect:

There are currently unlikely to be any IPCError-content examples because of a bug in the client.
We'd like to reprocess the affected set of crashes from 47beta after this change is made.
Adrian, does the description and User Story make enough sense for you to take on this bug? 

Benjamin, we are working on a feature whereby you can make a SuperSearch and pipe the results into reprocessing. It's not ready for many days (or weeks if it turns out to be complications). I'm guessing that's too long a wait? If it is, with your guidance I can manually make sure those matching crash IDs are reprocessed. 
Perhaps we make a dependent bug on this just about the reprocessing.

That looks correct.

Do you want to file a new bug about the reprocessing? By the way, we have a simple tool now to reprocess individual crashes. You need to be a superuser but at least it's doable. We're actively working on improving that so it can allow for batch-reprocessing without superuser access needed.

Jim, could you file that separately and cc me? I'd like to know how you think we should classify those crashes, since my impression is that the stacks are still pretty broken.
