What is LitmusChaos?
LitmusChaos is a Cloud-Native Chaos Engineering platform for Kubernetes Developers and SREs. It is a CNCF sandbox project which is highly extensible and integrates with other tools to enable the creation of custom experiments for Chaos Engineering.
A definition of Chaos Engineering taken from principles of chaos engineering website:-
“ Chaos Engineering is the discipline of experimenting on a system in order to build confidence in the system’s capability to withstand turbulent conditions in production. ”
In simple words, it’s a process of injecting failures in the system before they happen unexpectedly, finding the weaknesses, and fixing them.
About my project
My project will be revolving around the enhancement of the ChaosCenter-E2E test suite. Currently, the ChaosCenter pipeline consists of tests for Installation, Workflow Scheduling, Hub CRUD operations, Teaming, Settings & Cleanup. My work involves making the tests related to the above operations more optimized and robust along with adding tests for operations related to Workflow Analytics, Datasource & Dashboard configuration, etc. Running performance tests for checking the ChaosCenter portal’s responsiveness and stability will be a stretch goal of my project.
I am diving deep into the concepts of Chaos Engineering and looking forward to learning good things and delivering them back to the community.
