Tap into your emotions As testers are usually very quick to point out, the happy path is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the types of tests needed for adequately covering the many risks of any new software feature. Starting with the happy path scenario certainly makes sense, as it provides us with a strong initial key example and a basis from which to think about other possibilities, but we don’t want to get stuck there. It is not always easy to see what other paths to take, what other permutations to try and techniques to use.

Maybe the change is perfectly OK, but it deserves investigating. Error stack traces tend to be long, so they stand out easily. Any but the most trivial systems built today involve multiple components and networking, so they are designed to be fault tolerant and some errors are normal. For example, a web system might log database access errors and reconnect automatically. Production logs have some normal error log trends, so early warnings about unexpected complex faults can be difficult to spot.

There will probably be a lot of garbage there, but you will at least learn what to expect and be able to spot new trends or events out of the normal. For automated tests, it’s more useful to keep an eye on file sizes. For example, if a test suite run normally generates 20 KB of logs, and the most recent execution dumped 200 KB, something important changed.
