🎈 Welcome to Linkerd! 👋

Linkerd is a service sidecar designed to give service owners automatic observability, reliability, and runtime diagnostics for their service without requiring configuration or code changes. Linkerd is also a service mesh, running across an entire cluster to provide platform-wide telemetry, security, and reliability.

Linkerd is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) project.
