Chaos Monkey randomly terminates virtual machine instances and containers that run inside of your production environment. Exposing engineers to failures more frequently incentivizes them to build resilient services.

See the documentation for info on how to use Chaos Monkey.

Chaos Monkey is an example of a tool that follows the Principles of Chaos Engineering.

Requirements

This version of Chaos Monkey is fully integrated with Spinnaker, the continuous delivery platform that we use at Netflix. You must be managing your apps with Spinnaker to use Chaos Monkey to terminate instances.

Chaos Monkey should work with any backend that Spinnaker supports (AWS, GCP, Azure, Kubernetes, Cloud Foundry). It has been tested with AWS and Kubernetes.

Install locally

To install the Chaos Monkey binary on your local machine:

go get github.com/netflix/chaosmonkey/cmd/chaosmonkey

How to deploy

See the docs for instructions on how to configure and deploy Chaos Monkey.
