Manual Progressive Chaos Monkey


In case you want to run some chaos monkey but don’t feel ready yet.

  1. plan to disturb the system manually once,
  2. then make the system robust against that disturbance,
  3. then plan it another time,
  4. and again
  5. and again
  6. at some point you will want to automatize this test => automatize it
  7. then think about another disturbance and plan it,
  8. and again
  9. and again
  10. automatize it
  11. rinse and repeat

When you think you bullied the system enough, may be you are ready for actually chaos monkey.

In the spirit of the voluntary discomfort, by willingly adjusting to voluntary disturbances, you will get more ready when the discomfort actually happen.
