Meshery supports a number of different service meshes, so that you can learn and compare different service mesh functionality. Once you have selected to operate a given service mesh, Meshery will assist you with ongoing activities.
Meshery's Capabilities RegistrySee Architecture for a description of Meshery's Capabilities Registry for an understanding of how Meshery Adapters deliver service mesh-specific functionality.
Service Mesh Lifecycle Management
Meshery automates the provisioning of various service meshes, allowing users to select different configuration profiles in order to support a variety of deployment models.
Meshery adapters will dynamically retrieve the specific service mesh’s release package upon initial deployment of a given service mesh. Meshery adapters cache (in
.meshery/bin) the service mesh installation package.
Deleting a service mesh
Just as Meshery automates the provisioning of various service meshes, so does it facilitate the deprovisioning of service meshes.
Workload Lifecycle Management
Users may bring their applications (perform workload onboarding) on the service mesh using the Custom Configuration operation.
Commonly adjoining each service mesh is a sample application that facilitates demonstration of the value of the given service mesh. Meshery allows you to efficiently install sample applications across different service meshes.
Meshery provides the ability for you as a service mesh manager to customize your service mesh deployment.
Meshery tracks operations that you perform on service meshes and their workloads. Meshery provides notification of environment issues, application conflicts with service mesh configuration.
Acknowledging and dismissing notifications
Many notifications are informational and can readily be dismissed after reading. Some notifications include actionable alerts.
Taking action on alerts
Particular notifications that Meshery presents are immediately actionable. These are denoted by a red colored highlight. Be on the lookout for these alerts and take action promptly to ensure a smooth running service mesh.
