Open SourceChaos Engineeringplatform

Litmus is an open source Chaos Engineering platform that enables teams to identify weaknesses & potential outages in infrastructures by inducing chaos tests in a controlled way.

Developers & SREs can simply execute Chaos Engineering with Litmus as it is easy to use, based on modern chaos engineering practices & community collaborated. Litmus is 100% open source & CNCF-hosted.




Sep 11, 2024

LitmusChaos Con is an event surrounding all things LitmusChaos and Chaos Engineering. It is a platform for SREs, QA Engineers, Developers, Performance Engineers and Students to exchange their ideas, experience, contribution stories and usage of LitmusChaos.

An end to end Chaos Engineering platform

Litmus is an end-to-end chaos engineering platform for cloud native infrastructure and applications. Litmus is designed to orchestrate and analyze chaos in their environments.


Get Started in minutes

A chaos experiment can be scheduled within minutes from scratch with almost no learning curve. The initial start of your chaos engineering journey is straight forward.


Loaded with features to achieve resilience

Over time, with the monthly cadence releases and community engagement, we have added a lot of features and made LitmusChaos much easier for the end-users. With the launch of Litmus 2.0, a new way of chaos engineering can be performed by the users.


ChaosHub hosts most of the chaos experiments that are needed for a quick start in Chaos Engineering. These experiments are well tested, highly tunable and declarative.

Litmus Experiments

Chaos experiments are chained either in sequence or in parallel to build a chaos scenario. Chaos Experiments are declarative, schedulable and browsable. Chaos Experiments analytics are also available.

Litmus Probes

Steady state hypothesis can be created and verified using Litmus probes. Various types of probes help users to create complete chaos scenarios close to the real application experience upon failure.

Chaos Observability

Litmus exports Prometheus metrics transforming events and results that can help to highlight and quantify the impact of chaos on the applications or infrastructure in real time via in-house dashboards and external visualisation or APM tools.

Multi Tenant for K8s

Kubernetes namespaces are used as a completely managed environments for individual developers on Kubernetes. All features of Litmus can be used within the Kubernetes namespaces.

And many more features

Chaos Engineering made easy

Litmus is highly extensible and integrates with other tools to enable the creation of custom experiments. Kubernetes developers & SREs use Litmus to manage chaos in a declarative manner and find weaknesses in their applications and infrastructure.

about us

“Litmus is a great tool that offers out of the box generic chaos tests with different types of probes for performing validations at different time during the experiment which make automation easy.”
