There are a lot of tools created for testing of k8s deployment. For example, you can conduct the test of your environment running kubectl to check the rollout statuses or to run the CI process. Also, you can use other specialized tools for deployment check. The penetration testing Kubernetes allows users to check the security issues of their environment and the k8s project.

Generally, we run tests in any k8s projects using a dedicated Test Environment. With this approach, we cannot cause any damage to your existing infrastructure and test the fixes of the revealed problems right away before taking it to the production k8s environment.
Typically, we copy the production environment to the local storage and run all the tests we need. After completing the tests, we apply the changes in the test environment, and if everything goes smoothly, we take everything back to the production k8s cluster.
