  1. Challenge

    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.

  2. Challenge

    Run an Experiment

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

  3. Challenge

    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?
