The Keyhole Software team is excited to announce the release of a new open source tool: Trouble Maker.

Trouble Maker helps organizations to maintain stable and durable platforms when implementing Microservices platforms and Java web applications.

Trouble Maker randomly takes down services during normal business hours in an effort to test stability and automated recovery. In addition, it provides an ad hoc console to produce common troublesome issues in your platform so you can test its durability on demand.

A successful Microservices platform requires a durable and resilient environment that supports the ability to continuously deploy multiple services. Instead of waiting for a failure to occur and seeing how durable and resilient your platform is, Trouble Maker allows you to be proactive and make failure a USE CASE of your platform.

Trouble Maker was implemented for Java-based web and Microservices-based applications. Here’s a diagram of how it works:
