Goss is a YAML-based tool for validating server configuration that allows the user to generate tests from within the current system state. Once written, tests can be executed, awaited or served as a health endpoint. old_noakes explains, "We wanted to use a 'different tool' to verify the outcomes of our Ansible run… we use [Goss] on all of our servers to validate they are working as expected. Think of it as a sanity check after changes.… By building this into all of our processes it gives us a great deal of confidence that changes we do on the instance have not impacted the critical services that the instance provides. Tool is: small, simple, useful, powerful. Love it."
