Re: New CF Service Broker "chaos-galago" - a chaos-monkey for your Cloud Foundry

Really cool. How nasty is the kill? Is the process killed, then CF
cleans-up on healthcheck failure, or is the app instance removed from the
router before instance termination?

Hi all,

Fidelity International have recently developed and open-sourced a new
Service Broker for Cloud Foundry called "chaos-galago". It has been created
with aim of providing a marketplace service to users that will cause chaos
to their bound applications. It works by randomly killing service instances
based on a provided probability and frequency.

We see a massive benefit in chaos-galago as it should allow developers to
test if their CF applications truly are cloud-resilient, do they cope with
unexpected failures? Are they deployed with enough instances so that they
meantime uptime?

More information and how to deploy it can be found on our Github repo:

Any input, feedback and questions are encouraged, we hope that everyone
finds it the same useful tool that we do.
