Chaos faults for Loadgen
Loadgen faults disrupt the state of the application by applying a heavy load on the target hosts. They can be categorized into different types based on the loadgen mechanism used in them.

Locust loadgen fault simulates load generation on the target hosts for a specific chaos duration. This fault:
- Slows down or makes the target host unavailable due to heavy load.
- Checks the performance of the application or process running on the instance.
This fault determines the resilience of the application under a generated load. It determines how quickly the application scales or recovers to avoid such failure.
