Project description

Chaos Monkey Engine

Coverage Documentation Status Build Status Dockerhub Build

The Chaos Monkey Engine (CME) is a tool to orchestrate attacks to your cloud infrastructure in order to implement the principles of Chaos Engineering). It is inspired in the Netflix’s SimianArmy but built with these principles in mind:

  • Multi-cloud (not only AWS) support through standards as Apache Libcloud and SSH
  • Ease of extensibility to add your new attacks and planners
  • HAL API interface

The CME is completely API-driven, so that it can be easily integrated with external and third-party systems.

To try a quickstart or read more, please refer to the documentation).

You can also find the last docker image build in the dockerhub.


  • Improve testing quality & coverage
  • Executors and Plans tracking Right now we are only tracking if the plan or executor has been executed or not. We need to track the state (executed, failed, pending…), possible logs and results.
  • Load planners & attacks dynamically from API Planners and Attacks are dynamically loaded from the modules directories. We need endpoints to upload attacks and planners modules to the modules directories.
  • Historic of executions Keep and historic and provide a way to query it.
