Introduction

Stress the memory of an ECS task.

Details

This attack will run the AWSFIS-Run-Memory-Stress SSM Document on the target ECS task using the SSM agent.

Use Cases

Test the behavior of the ECS task when the memory is under pressure.

  • Will the application crash? Does it recover from the high memory consumption?
  • Does the auto-scaling work as expected?
  • Does the load balancing care for busy workers?
  • Is your alerting properly configured?

Prerequisites

Rollback

The issued SSM command running on the SSM agent will be cancelled and the memory will be freed.
