Dashboard and Grafana

In addition to its command-line interface, Linkerd provides a web dashboard and pre-configured Grafana dashboards.

Linkerd Dashboard

The Linkerd dashboard provides a high level view of what is happening with your services in real time. It can be used to view the “golden” metrics (success rate, requests/second and latency), visualize service dependencies and understand the health of specific service routes. One way to pull it up is by running linkerd dashboard from the command line.

Grafana

As a component of the control plane, Grafana provides actionable dashboards for your services out of the box. It is possible to see high level metrics and dig down into the details, even for pods.

The dashboards that are provided out of the box include:
