Chaos Engineering

Chaos engineering can be used to simulate various types of failures that may occur in a cluster, such as node failures, network partitions, and application failures.

Before introducing chaos into a Kubernetes cluster, it is essential to define the objective of the experiment. This could be to test the resilience of a specific application, identify bottlenecks in the system, or evaluate the effectiveness of a new feature


These tools allow you to simulate various types of failures and disruptions, such as node outages, network issues, and resource constraints:

  • Chaos Mesh
  • LitmusChaos
  • Chaos Toolkit
  • Kube-Monkey
  • Chaos Kube

Chaos Mesh


curl -sSL | bash

# For kind
curl -sSL | bash -s -- --local kind

Accessing the Chaos Mesh Dashboard:

# Initiate the following port-forward command
kubectl port-forward -n chaos-testing svc/chaos-dashboard 2333:2333

# Browser
