Linkerd is an open source network proxy designed to be deployed as a service mesh: a dedicated layer for managing, controlling, and monitoring service-to- service communication within an application.Read more »
Linkerd adds visibility, control, and reliability to your application with a wide array of powerful techniques: circuit-breaking, latency-aware load balancing, eventually consistent (“advisory”) service discovery, deadline propagation, and tracing and instrumentation.
The way that services interact forms a critical part of an application’s runtime behavior. Without a consistent layer of control and visibility, runtime performance can be difficult to measure and diagnose, and partial failures can propagate to take down the entire application.
Beyond adding reliability through circuit breaking and latency-aware load balancing, Linkerd automatically instruments top-line service metrics such as request volume, success rates, and latency distributions. Linkerd also provides request-level routing and multi-service discovery integration with a powerful language called dtabs.Read more »
