Debugging Istio control plane with Squash Squash is a distributed debugger that supports multiple languages. When running in a container environment like Kubernetes, debugging applications can be difficult especially when distributed into multiple containers with implementations in potentially different languages. Squash can be used to set up language-native debuggers, provide all the plumbing through Kubernetes, and expose that to your […]

Introducing KubeSquash: Remotely Debug your Kubernetes Pods

The absence of debuggers for microservice applications has made debugging them a daunting task. Instead, typical “debug” workflow of microservices applications boils down to changing a few lines of code (e.g. by adding some print statements), recompiling, rebuilding images, redeploying, and then scanning through log lines over and over again. It often takes many iterations […]
