Backtrace for Open Source

Backtrace offers our crash management platform for free to Open Source projects, subject to certain criteria and our own discretion.


Open Source projects that qualify will have access to Backtrace services with:

  • Minidump integration, which includes Breakpad, Crashpad, and Electron

  • Hosted SaaS

  • 100 users

  • 1,000 crashes/month

  • 90-day retention cycle

Projects that exceed those volume limits, need access to our core dump analysis, or have additional deployment requirements (ex: on-premise deployment, SSO, custom data retention), will need to contact for an enterprise pricing model.
