Previously posted on the VMware Cloud Native Apps blog
Today we are releasing Sonobuoy 0.14.2, which delivers on one of our top roadmap goals: increased support for custom plugins, allowing developers and operators to extend Sonobuoy with additional tests and data gathering. It is now possible to easily create a plugin from a Docker image and run it within Sonobuoy without manually editing any YAML files.
Sonobuoy, an open source diagnostic tool, runs upstream Kubernetes tests to generate reports that help you understand the state of your cluster. Sonobuoy is the underlying technology powering the Certified Kubernetes Conformance Program, which was created by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) and is used by every Certified Kubernetes Service Provider.
With support for running Kubernetes end-to-end tests in air-gapped environments, it is now possible to run the end-to-end suite and validate your cluster’s state without Internet connectivity.
