Experience as an LFX Mentee for Chaos Mesh

I am a graduate student studying software engineering at Nanjing University. My research focuses on DevOps, which has intrinsic connections with chaos engineering and observability. To get involved in the open-source community, understand Kubernetes more deeply, and experience the daily jobs around infrastructure, I applied for the CNCF LFX Mentorship in Fall 2021 to work on the Chaos Mesh project.

How to Develop a Daily Reporting System to Track Chaos Testing Results

Chaos Mesh is a cloud-native chaos engineering platform that orchestrates chaos experiments on Kubernetes environments. It allows you to test the resilience of your system by simulating problems such as network faults, file system faults, and Pod faults. After each chaos experiment, you can review the testing results by checking the logs. But this is neither direct nor efficient. Therefore, I decided to develop a daily reporting system that would automatically analyze logs and generate reports. This way, it’s easy to examine the logs and identify the issues.

Chaos Mesh + SkyWalking: Better Observability for Chaos Engineering

Chaos Mesh is an open-source cloud-native chaos engineering platform. You can use Chaos Mesh to conveniently inject failures and simulate abnormalities that might occur in reality, so you can identify potential problems in your system. Chaos Mesh also offers a Chaos Dashboard which allows you to monitor the status of a chaos experiment. However, this dashboard cannot let you observe how the failures in the experiment impact the service performance of applications. This hinders us from further testing our systems and finding potential problems.

Implementing Chaos Engineering in K8s

Chaos Mesh is an open-source, cloud-native Chaos Engineering platform built on Kubernetes (K8s) custom resource definitions (CRDs). Chaos Mesh can simulate various types of faults and has an enormous capability to orchestrate fault scenarios. You can use Chaos Mesh to conveniently simulate various abnormalities that might occur in development, testing, and production environments and find potential problems in the system.

How to run chaos experiments on your physical machine

Chaos Mesh is a cloud-native Chaos Engineering platform that orchestrates chaos in Kubernetes environments. With Chaos Mesh, you can simulate a variety of failures, and use Chaos Dashboard, a web UI, to manage chaos experiments directly. Since it was open-sourced, Chaos Mesh has been adopted by many companies to ensure their systems’ resilience and robustness. But over the past year, we have frequently heard requests from the community asking how to run chaos experiments when the services are not deployed on Kubernetes.
