xk6-disruptor first steps

xk6-disruptor is an extension that adds fault injection capabilities to k6.

It provides a Javascript API to inject faults such as errors and delays into HTTP and gRPC requests served by selected Kubernetes Pods or Services.

export default function () {
    // Create a new disruptor that targets a service
    const disruptor = new ServiceDisruptor("app-service","app-namespace");

    // Disrupt the targets by injecting delays and faults into HTTP request for 30 seconds
    const fault = {
        averageDelay: '500ms',
        errorRate: 0.1,
        errorCode: 500
    disruptor.injectHTTPFaults(fault, "30s")
