Get Started with Testkube Pro

Looking at test logs and trying to find that key line that will help you debug an issue can be a simple task when dealing with logs that are 10 to 30 lines long. But what happens when you’re dealing with longer log files? As developers and testers alike, we’ve all been there.

As we grapple with the complexities of containerized applications orchestrated by Kubernetes, one critical aspect stands out for identifying issues, troubleshooting anomalies, and optimizing performance: having accurate and useful logs. 

In Testkube’s continued pursuit of streamlined testing processes and enhanced observability for your Kubernetes applications, we’ve worked on bringing an important improvement to your logs to help you troubleshoot failures and identify issues faster. 

With Testkube’s new Log Highlights, you can turn those hours of log reviewing into minutes:

Keyword Highlighting in Test Logs

Starting now, Testkube automatically highlights and flags keywords containing pre-defined words such as `error`, `fault`, `exception`, `warning`, referring to Error, Connection, or Resource and Access Issues.

This helps you quickly skim through the log file without missing relevant information from the test output.

You’ll be able to choose which words to highlight from a dropdown, and Testkube’s UI will do the rest. Giving you a multi-colored output including the selected keywords.

On top of that, you’ll be able to identify highlighted words from an eagle-eye view on the right side of the log output section - clicking on each colored section will take you directly to the highlighted line.
