Logging dropped packets


While working on Network policy I found it difficult to see the dropped packets. I want to understand reasons behind why a packet is dropped - may be a purely incorrect setup or incorrect policy as potential reasons. If anyone has figured it out please let me know.

    Hi @prama01886,

    Network policies act as namespaced pod-level firewall rules, isolating instances of an application based on a selector. The rules defined in the policy allow traffic to/from the isolated app, while dropping all other traffic to/from the same isolated app, that is dropping all traffic that is not specifically defined by a rule.
