Application Crashes

By default, the Native SDK intercepts crash signals and unhandled exceptions to send crash reports to Sentry. Depending on the backend, the crash report can be sent as a conventional event or as a native crash report file. On Windows, Linux, and macOS, the default backends send binary Minidump files. Sentry processes them to extract stack traces and exception information into a readable crash report.

For more information on Minidumps and the limits that apply, see What is a Minidump.
