chaostoolkit-prometheus

Build Status

Prometheus support for the Chaos Toolkit.

Install

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

$ pip install chaostoolkit-prometheus

Usage

To use this package, you must create have access to a Prometheus instance via HTTP and be allowed to connect to it.

This package only exports probes to query for some aspects of your system as monitored by Prometheus.

Here is an example of querying Prometheus at a given moment

{
    "type": "probe",
    "name": "fetch-cpu-just-2mn-ago",
    "provider": {
        "type": "python",
        "module": "chaosprometheus.probes",
        "func": "query",
        "arguments": {
            "query": "process_cpu_seconds_total{job='websvc'}",
            "when": "2 minutes ago"
        }
    }
}

You can also ask for an interval as follows:

{
    "type": "probe",
    "name": "fetch-cpu-over-interval",
    "provider": {
        "type": "python",
        "module": "chaosprometheus.probes",
        "func": "query_interval",
        "arguments": {
            "query": "process_cpu_seconds_total{job='websvc'}",
            "start": "2 minutes ago",
            "end": "now",
            "step": 5
        }
    }
}

In both cases, the probe returns the JSON payload as-is from Prometheus or raises an exception when an error is met.

The result is not further process and should be found in the generated report of the experiment run.
