Version 3.6.1 (23rd March 2021)

Spinnaker Version : 1.24.4

New Features

‌Info cluster

  • The log analysis in ‘Verification’ gate determines the health of the new release by scoring the following categories of unexpected events having an impact on the health of the logs(till 3.6 release) - Critical Error - Error - Warnings

  • There are often scenarios in our analysis where we can observe a higher jump in the number of info log lines in the New Release as compared to baseline.

  • As part of this ‘Info Cluster’ the user has a choice to enable the impact of substantial increase in informative logs on the scoring.

  • So now we will have four categories of events that will have an impact on the score to determine the health of the analysis:

    • Critical Error

    • Error

    • Warnings

    • Info

Download the unexpected cluster for offline analysis

In the ‘unexpected’ tab of the log analysis in the verification page, the user can download the complete cluster as a file for offline analysis.


  • In the Test verification screen and Test Summary screen, default text in the format "1 selected / 25 total".

  • In the Test Summary Screen - Start Time is changed to show the start of the canary analysis instead of start time of test run.
