Fake

A plugin that can fake a burning rate based on speed/rate factor options. A good plugin for exploring/learning how SLOs, SLIs, error budget and SLO alerting works.

You can get more information on the SRE workbook Alert on burn rate section.

Options

  • burn_rate: (Required) A number that tells the burn rate factor (e.g: 1, 2, 10...).
  • jitter_percent: (Optional) A percent number that will add/remove jitter on the burned rate.

Metric requirements

Doesn't have any metric requirements.
