A utility for triaging must-gather output

Project description


When things go wrong with OpenShift or OpenShift Container Storage, we sometimes use must-gather or ocs-must-gather to collect logfiles and other documents to diagnose issues. While those tools are useful in that they can show us a lot about the state of the system(s), they don't offer anything to help process that information.

must-triage is a very small utility to aid in identifying problems recorded in must-gather output.


Currently, must-triage knows about the following potential issues:

OpenShift (OCP)

  • Unparseable YAML files
  • Pods not in ready state
  • Operators who haven't reported success
  • YAML files which contain a top-level error field

OpenShift Container Storage (OCS)

  • Empty JSON files
  • Unparseable JSON files
  • Ceph health not HEALTH_OK
  • Logfiles which mention a panic

Teaching it to identify new issues is not difficult; PRs warmly welcomed!
