Welcome to the Open Chaos Experiment Catalog!

This is a free, public and community-contributed catalog of chaos engineering experiments.

Catalog Layout and Experiment Format

The format of the catalog is relatively flexible, being a resource that will index many different types of experiments and even potentially different experiment-executing tools and systems. The current convention, where applicable, for a new experiment to be added to the catalog are:

  1. Every experiment should reside in its own directory below a parent directory that is used to group experiments by target platform context, i.e. Kubernetes, Azure, AWS etc.

  2. Top level tags for an experiment are recommended to be platform and service, with a corresponding descriptor after a :.

    Platform specifies the overall platform being targetted or manipulated by the experiment, for example platform:kubernetes. service, where applicable, specifies any sub-service of the platform being employed, such as service:node. Any combination of platform:* and service:* tags may be used for a single experiment so that it is appropriately indexed for catalog searching.

  3. A is recommended, following the general template form as show by the file-must-not-disappear experiment sample.

  4. Optionally Yaml as well as JSON can be provided as the preferred format of an experiment, according to an author's tastes. However it is advised to submit both formats if possible.
