Let's get started by installing the CLI:
curl https://run.linkerd.io/install | sh
linkerd to your path with:
Use the CLI to verify that your cluster is compatible with Linkerd by running:
linkerd check --pre
After everything passes, it is time to install the control plane:
linkerd install | kubectl apply -f -
linkerd install generates a list of Kubernetes resources. Run it standalone
if you would like to understand what is going on. By piping the output of
linkerd install into
kubectl, the Linkerd control plane resources will be
added to your cluster and start running immediately.
It may take a minute or two for your Kubernetes cluster to pull the Linkerd images and start all the components. While that’s happening, we can validate that everything’s happening correctly by running:
If you're interested in what components were installed, you can run:
kubectl -n linkerd get deploy
With Linkerd installed onto the cluster, the next step will be to explore a little and see what is happening.
