KubeInvaders on Openshift 4.1

Just add new special input key for KubeInvaders. Press ‘n’ to jump between namespaces!


Recently I released a gamified chaos engineering tool for Kubernetes (it has been added in https://github.com/dastergon/awesome-chaos-engineering some days ago) and I would like deploy it on Openshift 4.1.

First of all, follow these two guides:

Openshift 4 Install Experience

Cluster Install

A today,  for trying Openshift 4 the best choise is by using AWS.  The openshift-install-linux utility installs a ready to use cluster through Terraform.

The installation is very easy and after the execution of openshift-install-linux-amd64 I had just to follow instructions for connecting to my new Openshift cluster.

Before to deploy KubeInvaders create a sample namespace in which run, for example, NodeJS applications. You can deploy it directly from the Openshift catalog.

Let’s install KubeInvaders.

# Clone KubeInvaders
git clone https://github.com/lucky-sideburn/KubeInvaders.git
# Do the following commands. 
# Same and updated guide on https://github.com/lucky-sideburn/KubeInvaders#install-kubeinvaders-on-openshift

# The namespace you want to stress

# Choose route host for your kubeinvaders instance.

# Please add your source ip IP_WHITELIST. This will add haproxy.router.openshift.io/ip_whitelist in KubeInvaders route
# https://docs.openshift.com/container-platform/3.9/architecture/networking/routes.html#whitelist

oc new-project kubeinvaders --display-name='KubeInvaders'
oc create sa kubeinvaders -n kubeinvaders
oc create sa kubeinvaders -n $TARGET_NAMESPACE
oc adm policy add-role-to-user edit -z kubeinvaders -n $TARGET_NAMESPACE

TOKEN=$(oc describe secret -n $TARGET_NAMESPACE $(oc describe sa kubeinvaders -n $TARGET_NAMESPACE | grep Tokens | awk '{ print $2}') | grep 'token:'| awk '{ print $2}')
oc process -f openshift/KubeInvaders.yaml -p ROUTE_HOST=$ROUTE_HOST -p TARGET_NAMESPACE=$TARGET_NAMESPACE -p TOKEN=$TOKEN | oc create -f -

Open routes and go to KubeInvaders location

Scale pods of foobar namespace to 20 replicas.

oc scale dc testapp --replicas=20 -n foobar

I deployed also https://github.com/hjacobs/kube-ops-view because I find it very cool for watching pods distributed across node workers.

This is how KubeInvaders works with Openshift 4.1.
