Chaos Toolkit Cloud Foundry Extension

Build Status Python versions Requirements Status Has wheel

This extension package provides probes and actions for Chaos Engineering experiments against a Cloud Foundry instance using the Chaos Toolkit.

Install

This package requires Python 3.5+

To be used from your experiment, this package must be installed in the Python environment where chaostoolkit already lives.

$ pip install -U chaostoolkit-cloud-foundry

Usage

To use the probes and actions from this package, add a similar payload to your experiment file:

{
    "type": "action",
    "name": "terminate-random-instance",
    "provider": {
        "type": "python",
        "module": "chaoscf.probes",
        "func": "terminate_some_random_instance",
        "arguments": {
            "name": "my-app",
            "org_name": "my-org",
            "space_name": "my-space"
        }
    }
},
{
    "type": "probe",
    "name": "fetch-app-statistics",
    "provider": {
        "type": "python",
        "module": "chaoscf.probes",
        "func": "get_app_stats",
        "arguments": {
            "name": "my-app",
            "org_name": "my-org",
            "space_name": "my-space"
        }
    }
}

That's it!

Please explore the code to see existing probes and actions.

Discovery

You may use the Chaos Toolkit to discover the capabilities of this extension:

$ chaos discover chaostoolkit-cloud-foundry --no-install

If you have logged in against a Cloud Foundry environment, this will discover information about it along the way.

Configuration

This extension to the Chaos Toolkit need credentials to a Cloud Foundry account with appropriate scopes. Please add the following sections to your experiment file:

{
    "configuration": {
        "cf_api_url": "https://api.local.pcfdev.io",
        "cf_verify_ssl": false
    },
    "secrets": {
        "cloudfoundry": {
            "cf_username": "user",
            "cf_password": "pass"
        }
    }
}

You may leave "cf_verifiy_ssl" out of the configuration when you want to verify TLS certificates. Usually, local environments are self-signed so it may be useful to disable that check in that case.

You may also specify the "cf_client_id" and "cf_client_secret" secrets when you need. Their default values are "cf" and "" respectively. These work well against a local PCF dev install.

Then in your probe or action:

{
    "type": "probe",
    "name": "fetch-app-statistics",
    "provider": {
        "type": "python",
        "secrets": ["cloudfoundry"],
        "module": "chaoscf.probes",
        "func": "get_app_stats",
        "arguments": {
            "name": "my-app",
            "org_name": "my-org",
            "space_name": "my-space"
        }
    }
}

Test

To run the tests for the project execute the following:

$ pip install -r requirements-dev.txt
$ pytest

Contribute

If you wish to contribute more functions to this package, you are more than welcome to do so. Please, fork this project, make your changes following the usual PEP 8 code style, sprinkling with tests and submit a PR for review.

The Chaos Toolkit project requires all contributors must sign a Developer Certificate of Origin on each commit they would like to merge into the master branch of the repository. Please, make sure you can abide by the rules of the DCO before submitting a PR.

Develop

If you wish to develop on this project, make sure to install the development dependencies. But first, create a virtual environment and then install those dependencies.

$ pip install -r requirements-dev.txt -r requirements.txt 

Then, point your environment to this directory:

$ python setup.py develop

Now, you can edit the files and they will be automatically be seen by your environment, even when running from the chaos command locally.

Test

To run the tests for the project execute the following:

$ python setup.py test
