Public Preview: Azure Chaos Studio supports new faults for App Service and Virtual Machines

Published date: 03 August, 2023

Azure Chaos Studio now supports the following two new faults.

Stop App Service: this new service-direct fault allows customers to stop an App Service, Functions, API Apps, or Mobile Apps resource and restart it at the end of the fault duration. This can help simulate outages or shutdown scenarios for a system that depends on App Service.

Network Packet Loss: this new agent-based Network Packet Loss fault enables simulation of network congestion or network hardware issues within a Virtual Machine or Virtual Machine Scale Set. 

Both of these new faults can be used by deploying templates, the REST API, or in the Azure portal. Details and examples are available in the fault library. For more information about Azure Chaos Studio, see Azure Chaos Studio documentation.
