The CrashDumps class has two methods for enabling collection of crash dump data: EnableCollection and EnableCollectionToDirectory. EnableCollection enables collection of full crash dumps or mini crash dumps to the CrashDumps directory, while EnableCollectionToDirectory enables collection of crash dumps to a specified directory.
You can use CrashDumps with worker roles without additional configuration, but web roles require additional configuration due to robust ASP.NET exception handling.
