Using Chaos Engineering to Build a Reliable TiDB

Wednesday 11:55 AM - 12:45 PM

@ Big Bend AB

TiDBOpen Source Databases

50 minutes conference



Building a robust and reliable distributed database is not easy. In TiDB, to ensure our users' data is always safe and the system is always stable, we use Chaos Engineering to help uncover system-level weaknesses before they appear in production environment.

In this talk, I will cover the different types of fault injection techniques our team uses to test TiDB, how we build our own Chaos Engineering platform, and how we integrate various Chaos Engineering techniques into our own automated testing framework, called Schrodinger, to support continuous testing of TiDB.
