How do you know which Chaos Engineering tool is the right one for your organization?

Choose wisely and you’ll enable your entire organization to proactively find and fix issues before they impact customers.

Choose poorly and you end up with no way to find risks before they take down your systems.

This short guide walks you through the key questions and criteria you need to evaluate in order to find the right Chaos Engineering tool for your organization—and shows you how popular tools stack up against those criteria.

  • Incident classification: SEV descriptions and levels, and SEV and time-to-detection (TTD) timelines

  • Organization-wide critical service monitoring, including key dashboards and KPI metrics emails

  • Service ownership and metrics for organizations maintaining a microservices architecture

  • Effective on-call principles for site reliability engineers, including rotation structure, alert threshold maintenance, and escalation practices

  • Chaos Engineering practices to identify random and unpredictable behavior in your system

  • Monitoring and metrics to detect incidents caused by self-healing systems

  • Creating a high-reliability culture by listening to people in your organization
