How to debug Testground

Testground is pretty cool, but debugging is sort of a pain because everything runs in docker containers.

Enable Debug Logging


Use an actual debugger from the docker containers


Use a stopped container

pass --run-cfg keep_containers=true, then in the logs, identify the container id,

You can then

› docker commit tg-compatibility-rust-ping-cbcgvdael22iqdbr32v0-single-1 debug/rust                                                        

› docker run -it --rm --entrypoint sh debug/rust
