Gatling and Pulumi

Has anyone tried to access Pulumi from Gatling test?

I am trying to write a Gatling simulation for testing migration. My intent is to

  1. create some application data using my service
  2. call the checksum API which would calculate the checksum with the current version, say v1
  3. Start the service with version v2.
    4.Caluclate checksum to validate the data is persisted

To achieve this, I need to start and stop the REST API service from Gatling. Since the service is deployed in Kubernetes, the development team uses pulumi to deploy into Kubernetes. I need a way to use pulumi in my Gatling simulation test to start/stop service. Any inputs would be helpful
