Chaos Toolkit Extension for SaltStack

Project description

Chaos Toolkit Extension for SaltStack

Build Status Python versions

This project is a collection of actions and probes, gathered as an extension to the Chaos Toolkit.

Generally SaltStack runs minion agents in machine level, and minions are under management of one or more SaltMaster machines. On the SaltMaster or via API, SaltMaster can run bulk commands or scripts or other actions on any connected minion. The biggest advantage of SaltSatck is adapting cross cloud solutions on VM level chaos experiments. If you are working on hybrid cloud and have network tunnelled, one SaltMaster could control all VMs across multiple clouds, e.g. Azure, AWS, etc.

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-saltstack

Usage

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

{
    "type": "action",
    "name": "burn_cpu",
    "provider": {
        "type": "python",
        "module": "chaossaltstack.machines.actions",
        "func": "burn_cpu",
        "secrets": ["saltstack"],
        "arguments": {
            "parameters": {
                "execution_duration": "300"
            }
        }
    }
}

That's it!

Please explore the code to see existing probes and actions.

Configuration

Credentials

0. Salt Master URL
    * SALTMASTER_HOST

1. Useranme & Password.
   -d username='salt' -d password='abcd1234' -d eauth='pam'
   Then a token in obrained via <salt_url>/login

2. Token
   A token directly, same with the backend of 1.

3. Key, only from Salt Master
    * SALTMASTER_HOST: Salt Master API address

    You can authenticate with user / password via:
    * SALTMASTER_USER: the user name
    * SALTMASTER_PASSWORD: the password

    Or via a token:
    * SALTMASTER_TOKEN

There are two ways of doing this:

  • you can either pass the name of the environment variables to the experiment definition as follows (recommended):

    {
        "saltstack": {
            "SALTMASTER_HOST": {
                "type": "env",
                "key": "SALTMASTER_HOST"
            },
            "SALTMASTER_USER": {
                "type": "env",
                "key": "SALTMASTER_USER"
            },
            "SALTMASTER_PASSWORD": {
                "type": "env",
                "key": "SALTMASTER_PASSWORD"
            }
        }
    }
    
    {
        "saltstack": {
            "SALTMASTER_HOST": {
                "type": "env",
                "key": "SALTMASTER_HOST"
            },
            "SALTMASTER_TOKEN": {
                "type": "env",
                "key": "SALTMASTER_TOKEN"
            }
        }
    }
    
  • or you inject the secrets explicitly to the experiment definition:

    {
        "saltstack": {
            "SALTMASTER_HOST": "https://172.10.20.666",
            "SALTMASTER_USER": "username",
            "SALTMASTER_PASSWORD": "password"
        }
    }
    
    {
        "saltstack": {
            "SALTMASTER_HOST": "https://172.10.20.666",
            "SALTMASTER_TOKEN": "abcd1234abcd1234abcd1234"
        }
    }
    

    Additionally you may directly use if you are on the SaltMaster
