Istio provides a flexible model to enforce authorization policies and collect telemetry for the services in a mesh. New Relic's Istio adapter exports telemetry data from your Istio instance to your New Relic account.

Enable Istio adapter
To enable our Istio adapter:

Find your data
To find your data, go to one.newrelic.com and go to Your applications > Entity explorer. From the Entities screen, search for your service by name. From there, you can explore your metrics using the Data explorer and build dashboards using your metrics. If you're sending distributed tracing data, the distributed tracing feature is available to query and view traces.
