Chaos Toolkit Extension for managing toxiproxy from an experiment

Project description

# Chaos Toolkit Driver for Toxiproxy

[![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/chaostoolkit-incubator/chaostoolkit-toxiproxy.svg?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/chaostoolkit-incubator/haostoolkit-toxiproxy)
[![Python versions](https://img.shields.io/pypi/pyversions/chaostoolkit-toxiproxy.svg)](https://www.python.org/)

Welcome to the [Chaos Toolkit][chaostoolkit] driver for [Toxiproxy][toxiproxy]! This extension allows you to setup toxy proxy probes and methods from chaostoolkit by leveraging the toxyproxy [http management api](https://github.com/Shopify/toxiproxy#http-api).

[toxiproxy]: https://github.com/Shopify/toxiproxy
[chaostoolkit]: http://chaostoolkit.org

## 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-toxiproxy
```

## Usage

### Configuration

To start using the actions and probes all you need to do is add the toxiproxy host with "toxiproxy_host" as the key, and optionally the port with "toxiproxy_port" as the key, to the configuration section in your experiment json. If not provided the port defaults to 8474.

Example in experiment.json

```json
"configuration": {
"toxiproxy_host" : "10.124.23.183",
"some_environment_variable": {
"type": "environment",
"key": "ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLE"
}
},
```

This extension follows the toxiproxy rules. A proxy is the channel where toxicity can be added. For this reason the extension is broken into proxy management and toxic management.

All actions and probes in the extension are of python type and are used like any other python extension.

### Proxy actions

#### create_proxy

Creates a proxy to which toxics can be added. In toxiproxy a listen port of value 0 tells the API to assign a random available port. The value where the proxy is listenting will be attached to the **chaostoolkit configuration object** as *\<proxyname\>_PORT*. Should the creation of the proxy fail, an assertion error is raised stopping all subsequent actions.

|Argument|Description|Required|Default|
|--------|-----------|--------|-------|
|proxy_name|name for the proxy|Yes|None|
|upstream_host|ip address of the host to send traffic to|Yes|None|
|upstream_port|port of the application to send traffic to|Yes|None|
|listen_host| IP address to bind where toxiproxy listens|No| 0.0.0.0|
|listen_port|port to listen for requests, 0 means pick random value|No|0|
|enabled| Whether to start listening or not|No|True|

#### modify_proxy

Modify the configuration of a given proxy. Useful to change the upstream configiuration. Only arguments supplied result in modification of the proxy.

|Argument|Description|Required|Default|
|--------|-----------|--------|-------|
|proxy_name|name for the proxy|Yes|None|
|listen_addres|ip:port address to modify|No|None|
|upstream_addres|ip:port of the upstream|No|None|
|enabled| Toggle enabled/disabled state|No|None|

#### disable_proxy

Disables the proxy, this is useful to simulate a proxied service being down.

|Argument|Description|Required|Default|
|--------|-----------|--------|-------|
|proxy_name|name for the proxy to disable|Yes|None|


#### enable_proxy

Enables a disabled proxy.

|Argument|Description|Required|Default|
|--------|-----------|--------|-------|
|proxy_name|name for the proxy to enable|Yes|None|

#### delete_proxy

Removes the proxy from the system.
