Chaos Monkey is a way of testing the resilience of your system by randomly killing pods to check your system behaves properly.
Failures will always happen so why not force failures to happen during office hours when your team are watching; rather than at 3AM when you're all asleep?
Run... button on the
apps tab of the fabric8 console then select the
chaos monkey app and click the run button.
We highly recommend you run the ChatOps apps first and login to the chat room so that you can see the monkey awesome take place in the chat room as pods are killed!
You can configure the template of the Chaos Monkey to specifically include or exclude certain kinds of pods using wildcards; chaos monkey can even kill itself which is quite funny ;)
To install your own Chaos Monkey see the Install Fabric8 on Kubernetes or OpenShift Guide
