[DB Seminar] Spring 2020 DB Group: Testing Cloud-Native Databases with Chaos Mesh

Title: Testing Cloud-Native Databases With Chaos Mesh®

In the world of distributed computing, faults happen to clusters unpredictably, especially when they run in the cloud. To make a distributed database like TiDB resilient enough, chaos engineering is the way to go. At PingCAP, we use Chaos Mesh®, an open-source chaos engineering platform for Kubernetes to improve the resiliency of TiDB. Chaos Mesh adopts a cloud-native design and currently supports more than 10 chaos types. This talk will mainly introduce Chaos Mesh and how we use it to test TiDB.
