What is Kraken's Administration Application Purpose?¶
The Administration application is used to:
- Manage files present in the data folder of Kraken's installation,
- Manage hosts used to execute tasks.
The Administration application displays a files manager like Window's File Explorer:
This files tree allows you to:
- List files,
- Create text files and directories,
- Cut, Copy and Delete files,
- Open and Edit Text files in the Files Editor,
- Upload and Download files or directories.
All files managed by Kraken are accessible and editable from this File Manager named 'Applications' visible on the left of the application:
This folder contains the default configuration files for the Gatling application.
Kraken makes a copy of this folder for every user that connect to the Gatling frontend application, the detail of Gatling configuration files is described here.
tasks folder contains two sub-folders used depending on the environment Kraken is running on:
Each one contains the following files:
configuration.yamlLists all available task types, how many containers are required for each and specifies the default environment variables such as memory and CPU requests/limits,
gatling-debug.yamlA template used to start a DEBUG task (a docker-compose template for Docker and a Pod specification for Kubernetes),
gatling-record.yamlSame for RECORD,
This table displays the available hosts.
