Dashboards Tour

We will explore the different dashboards that we have enabled with Istio:

Grafana: exposes monitoring metrics for services running within the mesh.

Tracing: offers end to end tracing of http requests going through different layers and containers.

Kiali: Kiali offers visibility and real time observability for the services running within the mesh including Istio components.

Istio offers a flexible pluggable system so you could plug Istio to different external addons that you are already using such as GCP StackDriver, Amazon Cloud Watch, DataDog … to list fews. You could also integrated you own system using the Mixer Configuration Model: Mixer overview
