Enhance Istio Distributed Tracing with OpenTracing

Part 2: Enable Async Messaging Tracing with OpenTracing

In this post, we will continue to use the eshop demo to explore how asynchronous messaging, specifically Kafka, can be traced in Istio service mesh with the help of Opentracing.

Enhance Istio Distributed Tracing with OpenTracing

Part 1: Implement Fine-grained Tracing with OpenTracing

While evolving towards a microservices architecture, the biggest change is that the monolith application has been divided into multiple independent processes(or services), as a result, a method call between software modules now becomes a remote procedure call go through multiple services. A client request usually goes through a couple of or even a dozen of services in a complex microservices system, which makes it really hard to figure out w

洞若观火:使用OpenTracing增强Istio的调用链跟踪

第二篇:如何利用Opentracing实现Kafka消息的调用跟踪

本文将接着上一篇继续介绍如何利用OpenTracing来对Kafka异步消息进行跟踪,并将异步消息的跟踪信息加入Istio/Envoy生成的分布式调用跟踪链中进行统一呈现。

洞若观火:使用OpenTracing增强Istio的调用链跟踪

第一篇:如何利用Opentracing实现方法级的细粒度跟踪

本文将介绍如何利用OpenTracing来增强Istio/Envoy缺省的调用链跟踪实现:如何利用Opentracing来实现跨进程边界的分布式调用上下文传递;以及在Istio/Envoy生成的分布式调用跟踪基础上实现方法级的细粒度调用跟踪。

Which One is the Right Choice for the Ingress Gateway of Your Service Mesh?

Kubernetes Ingress, Istio Gateway or API Gateway?

By default, in a Kubernetes cluster with the Istio service mesh enabled, services can only be accessed inside the cluster. However, some of the services may need to be exposed to the external network as well. Kubernetes and Istio provide a variety of means to get external traffic into your cluster including NodePort, LoadBalancer, Kubernetes Ingress and Istio Gateway. With all these options, which one should be the right choice for your service mesh running in production?
