Hi Community 

I am trying to fill up etcd with random data that exceeds the database size.

Have been looking around for other's experiences or any recommendations.

Out of my head, i would fill it up with ConfigMaps of big sizes to fill up the database without flooding the api-server 

would like to know you recommendation, opinions.

thanks in advance

HI Mustafa,

You can use the benchmark tool to fill etcd with random data. 
More specifically the put command.
