Well, ovirt-log-analyzer doesn't provide failure analysis, it just tries
to extract more important lines from the logs and add some information
to them. It may or may not be useful to add its output to OST failures
in future, but some feedback and testing are needed first, I assume
there are still bugs and things to improve.
I'll try to be more specific about the use case we're lookin at.
Right now, when a test fails in OST - al you get is the traceback from
nose of the oVirt API cll you've made. For some tests additional
information is provided by having nise collect it from STDOUT.
It could be very useful if we could use some information about the API
call that had been made, and use it to extract relevant information
about the call from the vdms and engine logs,
Can ovirt-log-analyzer be used for that?
