Download the free eBook from O'Reilly Media and learn how to test and improve the health and resiliency of systems and security controls, in real-time, by bringing observability to chaos engineering

The fundamental process of running chaos experiments is built around the live observability of the engineered chaos testing.

Observability and Chaos Engineering are two relatively new disciplines that are, for good reason, rapidly moving into the mainstream. The principles of observability turn your systems into inspectable and debuggable crime scenes, and chaos engineering encourages and leverages observability as it seeks to help you pre-emptively discover and overcome system weaknesses.

In this practical eBook, the author Russ Miles explains how Observability and Chaos Engineering go hand-in hand, since the fundamental process of running chaos experiments is built around the live observability of the engineered chaos testing. The eBook will will help you learn how to test and observe the health and resiliency of your systems and security controls, in real-time, by bringing observability to chaos engineering.

“Observability is a key characteristic of any successful system. As systems evolve increasingly rapidly, they become more complex and more susceptible to failure, vulnerabilities, and security threats. As you explore chaos engineering, the observability of your system will have to improve to enable you to explore and ask important questions about improvements to running your system, any vulnerabilities and potentially existing threats.”
