Steadybit

Supported OS Linux Windows Mac OS

Overview

Steadybit is a chaos engineering platform allowing you to simulate turbulent conditions in a controlled way, to improve system reliability and guide your organization to better incident management.

The Steadybit integration uses the status of Datadog monitors within chaos engineering experiments. This integration provides your team insight into chaos engineering activity such as the experiment’s environment, start and end time, and the result of the experiment through Datadog events.

Setup

The integration between Datadog and Steadybit is done through the Steadybit Datadog extension . The extension interacts with Datadog’s API to gather information about monitors and report events to Datadog.

Prerequisites

You need a free or paid Steadybit license . The integration supports Steadybit’s SAAS and on-premises offering.

Installation

Several installation methods are supported . For the best experience, install the Steadybit Datadog extension through the dedicated Helm chart, as shown below. To learn more about the supported values for datadog.siteParameter and datadog.siteUrl, see the Datadog sites page.
