Description

Provoke predictable errors in your Django projects. Raise OperationalErrors to see how well your project handle database connection errors. Ideal for failure tolerance testing.

License

This project is open sourced under the MIT License.

Installation

$ pip install django-sabot
  • Add 'sabot', to your project’s INSTALLED_APPS list.
  • Add some sabot patches in your settings.py file.

Usage

In you settings.py file:

from django.db import OperationalError

from sabot.import *

SABOT_PATCHES = (
    ConnectPatcher(error_generator=RandomErrorProducer, kwargs={'low': 1, 'high': 3}),
    CursorPatcher(error_producer=RandomErrorProducer, kwargs={'exception': OperationalError, 'low': 1, 'high': 10}),
    CursorPatcher(error_producer=CountErrorProducer, kwargs={'exception': OperationalError, 'number': 100, 'reset': True}),
    CursorPatcher(error_producer=TimeDeltaErrorProducer, kwargs={'exception': OperationalError, 'timedelta': {'seconds': 30}, 'reset': True}),
)

A django-sabot patch is composed of a monkey patcher class and an error producer class.

For example:

CursorPatcher(error_producer=TimeDeltaErrorProducer, kwargs={'exception': OperationalError, 'timedelta': {'seconds': 30}, 'reset': True}),

will produce an OperationalError when a database cursor is requested, every 30 seconds.
