Monitoring and Tracing
For monitoring, Istio offers out of the box monitoring via Prometheus and Grafana.
Note: Before we take a look at Grafana, we need to send some requests to our application using on
while true; do curl http://customer-tutorial.[[HOST_SUBDOMAIN]]-80-[[KATACODA_HOST]].environments.katacoda.com; sleep .2; done
grafana route by typing
oc get route -n istio-system
Now that you know the URL of
Grafana, access it at http://grafana-istio-system.[[HOST_SUBDOMAIN]]-80-[[KATACODA_HOST]].environments.katacoda.com/d/1/istio-dashboard?refresh=5s&orgId=1
