Test log output

The test log is produced during the test execution. All entries in the test log are assigned a particular log level. Only the entries with level that exceeds the active log level threshold actually appear in the test log output. Log levels are arranged by the 'importance' of the log entries. Here is the list of all levels in order of increasing 'importance':

Table 4. Messages

Notifications

Meaning

Success

This category includes messages that provide information on successfully passed assertions

Test tree traversal

This category includes messages that are produced by the Unit Test Framework core and indicate which test suites/cases are currently being executed or skipped

General information

This category includes general information messages produced in most cases by a test module author using the macro BOOST_TEST_MESSAGE

Warning

This category includes messages produced by failed WARNING level assertions

Non fatal error

This category includes messages produced by failed CHECK level assertions

Uncaught C++ exceptions

This category includes messages that are produced by the Unit Test Framework and provide detailed information on the C++ exceptions uncaught by the test case body.

Non-fatal system error

This category includes messages that are produced by the Unit Test Framework itself and provides information about caught non-fatal system error. For example it includes messages produced in the case of test case timeout or if floating point values calculation errors are caught.

Fatal system error

This category includes messages produced by failed require level assertions and by the Unit Test Framework itself in case of abnormal test case termination.


[Note] Note

The active log level works namely as threshold, not as selector. For the given active log level threshold, all test log entries with importance higher than threshold are enabled and all test log entries with importance below threshold are disabled.

In addition to the levels described above the test log defines two special log levels. The current log level can be set to:
