FAQ - Why is my test passing, but the driver throwing errors or exceptions in the logs?

The drivers are often noisy, i.e. they write a lot to the logs. At first glance it might look like an error is being reported, it isn’t really.

Although the logging says “pipe error” it is reported as a Warning:

WARNING: pipe error:

It is the “WARNING:” that you want to pay attention to, if that said “ERROR:” then you would be seeing errors.

Generally, if your code executes without an exception being thrown you are fine. If you experience an exception then have a look at the logs to see what is reported.
