Architecture introduction

litmus architecture


Chaos-Operator watches for the ChaosEngine CRs across namespaces and executes the Chaos-Experiments mentioned in the CR. By default, it runs in litmus namespace. The Chaos-exporter is used to export chaos metrics about state of experiments listed in the ChaosEngine, to a Prometheus database.


During installation, the following three CRDs are installed on the Kubernetes cluster.


Chaos Experiment is a CR and are available as YAML files on Chaos Hub. For more details visit ChaosHub documentation. To view and install chaos charts visit chaos-charts repository.


ChaosEngine CR links application to experiments. User has to create ChaosEngine YAML by specifying the application label and experiments and create the CR. The CR is watched by Chaos-Operator and chaos-experiments are executed on a given application.


Optionally metrics can be exported to a Prometheus database. Chaos-Exporter implements the Prometheus /metrics endpoint in port: 8080.
