Chaos Monkey is one of the popular tools used to test the reliability of cloud native applications. If you are using Spinnaker continuous delivery for multi-cloud deployment, you are already probably aware that Chaos Monkey is directly integrated with Spinnaker. You can enable Chaos Monkey to terminate instances of applications with the ability to control the frequency and other parameters.
In the recently concluded Spinnaker Summit, Steven Basgall from GogoAir presented a session about how to integrate Chaos Monkey to Spinnaker and some of the best practices. If you missed the session, check the video below.
