You might want to analyze exceptions received by someone else, for example, QA engineers, or investigate a deadlock, or a hang-problem. Unlike the exceptions that you get in the debug mode or when running unit tests, these exceptions do not have links that help you navigate to the corresponding locations in the source code.
With PhpStorm, you can simply copy an exception or full thread dump, paste it to the Stacktrace Analyzer, explore information, and navigate to the corresponding source code.
