trial?

In previous editions of the Radar, we've talked about using Chaos Monkey from Netflix to test how a running system is able to cope with outages in production by randomly disabling instances and measuring the results. Chaos Engineering is the nascent term for the wider application of this technique. By running experiments on distributed systems in production, we're able to build confidence that those systems work as expected under turbulent conditions. A good place to start understanding this technique is the Principles of Chaos Engineering website.
