Illumina Innovates with Rancher and Kubernetes
This section describes how to view the traffic that is being managed by Istio.
Rancher integrates a Kiali graph into the Rancher UI. The Kiali graph provides a powerful way to visualize the topology of your Istio service mesh. It shows you which services communicate with each other.
To see the traffic graph,
If you refresh the URL to the BookInfo app several times, you should be able to see green arrows on the Kiali graph showing traffic to v1 and v3 of the reviews service. The control panel on the right side of the graph lets you configure details including how many minutes of the most recent traffic should be shown on the graph.
For additional tools and visualizations, you can go to each UI for Kiali, Jaeger, Grafana, and Prometheus by clicking their icons in the top right corner of the page.
Istio’s monitoring features provide visibility into the performance of all your services.
