Guide to Enterprise Resiliency Testing

The hardest part of testing reliability is often just knowing where to start. Having a guide that explains when and how to run reliability tests can help you start running tests and improving reliability faster. In this whitepaper, you’ll learn:

  • What fault injection is and how it leads to improvements.
  • How to use Gremlin’s fault injection library to identify and fix reliability risks.
  • How to build a comprehensive, ongoing reliability testing practice.

  • 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

Reliability testing might look daunting, but it doesn’t have to be.

Our guide explains how to use Gremlin’s comprehensive reliability experiments to solve real-world use cases. Improve your systems’ fault tolerance, redundancy, scalability, and more with this whitepaper.
