Bring Your Chaos to Work Day

Join us for an emulated Chaos at Work Day. We’ll take over our pre-production environment and run a series of chaos experiments to test the resilience of our systems. We’ll be using a combination of LinkerD, Chaos Mesh, and K6 fault injections to simulate real-world scenarios and see how our monitoring systems respond. We want to be confident in answering some of the following questions:

  • How does our monitoring and alerting stack (Grafana, Loki, Tempo + Thanos) behave under unexpected behaviors?
  • How do our systems respond to network latency and failures? How quickly will our on-call team be notified?
  • Does our observability stack provide the right level of detail to understand what’s happening?
  • Can we build any interesting dashboards to help us understand the impact of chaos on our systems?

Moreover, can we make it fun? We’ll be running a series of guess games throughout the talk to keep everyone engaged and entertained.
