Chaos Mesh® is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) hosted project. It is a cloud-native Chaos Engineering platform that orchestrates chaos on Kubernetes environments. At the current stage, it has the following components:
See the following demo video for a quick view of Chaos Mesh:
Chaos Operator injects chaos into the applications and Kubernetes infrastructure in a manageable way, which provides easy, custom definitions for chaos experiments and automatic orchestration. There are three components at play:
Controller-manager: used to schedule and manage the lifecycle of CRD objects
Chaos-daemon: runs as daemonset with privileged system permissions over network, Cgroup, etc. for a specific node
Chaos Operator uses Custom Resource Definition (CRD) to define chaos objects. The current implementation supports a few types of CRD objects for fault injection, namely DNSChaos, PodChaos, PodIoChaos, PodNetworkChaos, NetworkChaos, IoChaos, TimeChaos, StressChaos, and KernelChaos, which correspond to the following major actions (experiments):
Blogs on Chaos Mesh design & implementation, features, chaos engineering, community updates, etc. See Chaos Mesh Blogs. Here are some recommended ones for you to start with:
Please reach out for bugs, feature requests, and other issues via:
On the fourth Thursday of every month (unless otherwise specified), the Chaos Mesh community holds a monthly meeting by video conference to discuss the status of Chaos Mesh.
