Wavefront by VMware

Wavefront by VMware Adapter for Istio is an adapter for Istio to publish metrics to Wavefront by VMware.

This adapter is currently experimental. Therefore, caution should be taken before using it in production environments.

Note: The master branch is used for active development and can become unstable. Please refer to the Quick Start from version 0.1.1 to install a stable version of the adapter.

Quick Start

This adapter could be installed either via Helm or via the Standard method.

Helm Installation

Helm is the preferred way of installing this adapter. Please see the Helm Quick Start to learn to install this adapter using Helm.

Standard Installation

Prerequisites

To deploy this adapter, you will need a cluster with the following minimum setup.

  • Kubernetes v1.10.0
  • Istio v1.0.3

Configuration

1. Download the configuration.

$ curl -LO https://raw.githubusercontent.com/vmware/wavefront-adapter-for-istio/0.1.1/install/config.yaml

2. If you want the metrics to be published to the Wavefront instance directly, supply the direct params for the wavefront-handler like so:

params:
  direct:
    server: https://YOUR-INSTANCE.wavefront.com
    token: YOUR-API-TOKEN

Instructions for generating an API token can be found in the Wavefront by VMware docs.

If you want the metrics to be published to the Wavefront Proxy instead, supply the proxy params like below:

params:
  proxy:
    address: YOUR-PROXY-IP:YOUR-PROXY-PORT

3. It is recommended that you update the source attribute to a reasonable value, for example, to your cluster name.

params:
  ...
  source: my-cluster

See the reference docs for the available configuration parameters.

Deployment

Installation

Execute the following command to configure the Istio Mixer to publish metrics to Wavefront using this adapter. This step must be performed after deploying Istio.

$ kubectl apply -f config.yaml

You should now be able to see Istio metrics on Wavefront under your configured source (or istio by default).

Uninstallation

To uninstall this adapter, use the following command.

$ kubectl delete -f config.yaml
