Discreetly Studying the Effects of Individual Traffic Control Functions - Lee Calcote & Prateek Sahu, Layer5

Like path-based routing? How about attribute-based whitelisting? Manipulating request headers and routing? (yes, you do.)

Service meshes offer granular control over service traffic, allowing you bend network traffic to your will. But, how do these individual traffic controls perform? How much latency do they induce? We present a study on the effects of individual traffic controls in a service mesh.

Using a simple application, we will show how users can chain together multiple (fake) microservices, which are configurable in terms of their behavior (i.e. respond precisely and consistently) in performance test environments.
