Adding k6 Reliability Tests to Your Pipeline with Keptn - Paul Balogh, Grafana Labs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As software systems become more distributed and complex, the "shift-left" movement brings reliability testing to earlier stages of development. Tools like JMeter, Gatling, and k6, among others, should no longer be considered optional to include in your CICD pipelines. Using such tools, along with your observability platform, can provide insight into your application's performance before it ever ships. By incorporating open-source k6, you can validate your workloads with load tests, contracts, chaos experiments, and even end-to-end browser tests. With this talk, you will see how the k6 tooling can be integrated with Keptn to enforce quality gates for your deployments. k6 is an open-source project written in Go that provides an extension framework for adding custom protocols and integrations like Kubernetes. Tests themselves are written in JavaScript to enable creation by a wide variety of engineers.
