About this Hands-on Lab

In this lab, we’ll explore how to use AWS Fault Injection Simulator (AWS FIS) to identify potential resilience issues.

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Configure Permissions for AWS Fault Injection Simulator

Create an experiment role and add a trust policy. Then, add a permissions policy to the role you just created.

Note: The files needed to create the policies can be found in the GitHub repository for the lab.

Run an Experiment

Run an experiment to test the hypothesis that if an instance reboots, httpd will start automatically.

Observe the System

Observe the behavior of the system, paying attention to the following:

  • After the server has rebooted, does httpd restart successfully?
  • Are the load balancer targets healthy or not?
  • Is the service still accessible through the load balancer?
  • Is there anything that you should change to improve resilience?
