An outage checker is used to automatially disable Chaos Monkey during ongoing outages.

If you wish to have Chaos Monkey check if there is an ongoing outage and disable accordingly, you need to:

  1. Give your outage checker a name (e.g., "chatbot")
  2. Code up a ype in Go that implements the Outage interface.
  3. Modify outage.go so that it recognizes your outage checker.
  4. Edit your config file to specify your outage checker.
