How much are you learning from your chaos experiments? How do you know it’s safe to perform them? Learn how to instrument your systems in order to gain confidence and get the most out of chaos, whether you’re injecting it on purpose or it’s already there in your system. This talk explores how Honeycomb’s engineering team leverages high-context telemetry data to measure service heath and risk in order to determine when it’s safe to perform experiments. Attendees will come away with next steps for instrumenting for observability in order to get the most out of their own chaos experiments.
