Project post by the LitmusChaos maintainers

The Chaos Engineering community is growing exponentially day by day and the LitmusChaos community is grateful to be receiving massive participation and immense engagement in recent times to help the Chaos Engineering community prosper and contribute back to its development.

We have decided to share monthly updates with the community from June 2022 onwards to update the community on the latest happenings and updates around the LitmusChaos project.

About LitmusChaos

LitmusChaos is a dynamic open source chaos engineering platform that enables teams to identify weaknesses and potential outages in infrastructures by inducing chaos engineering tests/experiments in a controlled manner. LitmusChaos is driven by the principles of Cloud-Native innovation and gave rise to the principles of Cloud-Native Chaos Engineering. Chaos engineering verifies the resilience of business services and helps DevOps pipelines proactively build code that is more resilient against software and infrastructure faults.
The LitmusChaos project was started in late  2017 to provide simple chaos jobs in Kubernetes. It became a CNCF sandbox project in 2020 and was promoted as a CNCF incubating project in January 2022. Today, it has maintainers from 5 different organizations across cloud-native vendors, solution providers, and end-users. 

The project is used in production by more than 30 organizations, including large end-users like Adidas, FIS, iFood, Cyren, Intuit, Lenskart, Orange, and more as well as technology organizations like Red Hat and VMware. 



LitmusChaos Releases 2.10.0

LitmusChaos version 2.10.0 was released on the 15th of June with some amazing new updates to the core components, the chaos center, and the Litmusctl.

The community is excited about the addition of “http” chaos experiments. The first one to be added is the Pod-http-latency experiment.

Pod-http-latency contains chaos to disrupt http requests of Kubernetes pods. This experiment can inject random http response delays on the app replica pods.

Further, in the upcoming releases, we are looking forward to the addition of the following http chaos experiments:

Some notable additions also include the release of the first beta version of the LitmusChaos m-agent which will help curate chaos for Non-Kubernetes targets, refactoring the GraphQL server, and added Envoy proxy support, new litmusctl commands and much more.

Check out the release notes for deeper details on the release:
