Introduction

This action leverages AWS EC2 API to manipulate the state of EC2 instances. More specifically, it can reboot, stop, hibernate and terminate them.

Use Cases

  • Verify auto-scaling of a Kubernetes node group.
  • Understand how pods are shifted across different nodes within a Kubernetes cluster.
  • Verify that system services come up on system start.
  • Check that your monitoring solution informs you about this occurrence.

Rollback

Note that this attack does not support any rollback. The attack only transmits the API call, e.g., StopInstances or TerminateInstances.
