Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Viewing logs for pods with multiple containers caused weird behavior, especially when switching between containers. The user should now be able to switch between container logs cleanly and the Follow link should work as expected.

Description Eric Jones 2017-02-10 21:30:25 UTC
Description of problem:
When a pod is still running the Console normally displays a "Follow" button so that you can follow along with the new logs that are coming in.

If you have a pod running that has two containers in it, the web console appears to display "Go to end" instead, which is usually the option when no more logs are coming in.

We think its possible this was fixed as early as 3.5 with this PR https://github.com/openshift/origin-web-console/pull/1310 but haven't confirmed it. We definitely no longer see this in master for 3.6

Comment 10 shahan 2017-07-11 08:28:00 UTC
Checked this issue in openshift both v3.6.139 and v3.5.5.30. It works well.
BTW, QE is checking many Modified bugs to see if they're verifiable. Because fixed, moving to Verified. If have other concerns, pls tell me, thx

Comment 11 shahan 2017-07-11 10:47:30 UTC
Since the step of verifying is wrong, please ignore the above comment. Will continue to research how to reproduce this bug tomorrow.  Sorry about that.

Reproduce this bug in the old version and it was fixed in openshift v3.6.139. For a pod with two containers, the web console correctly display "Follow" on the log terminal, see attachment
