Simulating server failures

tomstoms Member Tom SantosOrganization: DSTOProject: Framework to allow communications b/w components
I have created a mechanism to deal with scenarios such as the Icestorm server becoming unreachable during runtime within my program.

Until now, I have been manually pulling down Icestorm but I would like to automate tests for this. Is there a mechanism for launching and pulling down Icestorm programmatically?

    IceStorm is an IceBox service, so you can use iceboxadmin to start and stop it. If you want to bring down IceStorm in a disorderly fashion, the easiest thing is to kill IceBox from a script. A kill -9 will be as disorderly as it gets :)

    You can also look at the IceStorm test scripts, which stop the service for various tests.
