You can now create and run AWS Fault Injection Simulator (FIS) experiments that check the state of Amazon CloudWatch alarms and run AWS Systems Manager (SSM) Automations. You can also now run new FIS experiment actions that inject I/O, network black hole, and packet loss faults into your Amazon EC2 instanes using pre-configured SSM Agent documents. Because it can be difficult to predict how applications will respond to stress under real world conditions whether in testing or production environments, integrating alarm checks and automated runbooks into your FIS experiments can help you gain more confidence when injecting disruptive events such as network problems, instance termination, API throttling, or other failure conditions.
