Istio adapter

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.

Resources for our Istio adapter:

Enable Istio adapter

To enable our Istio adapter:

  1. Follow the Istio adapter install instructions.
  2. Optional: Instead of using the native Istio trace sampling, you can enable our Infinite Tracing feature. If you use this option, you will typically want to configure Istio to send us all trace data (learn more about sampling). To enable Infinite Tracing:
    1. In the New Relic UI, set up a trace observer.
    2. Configure our Istio adapter to send data to the trace observer: Set the spansHost value with YOUR_TRACE_OBSERVER_URL when deploying the Helm chart.

Find your data

To find your data, go to one.newrelic.com and go to Your applications > 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.

For more on how to query your data once it's in New Relic, see Query your data and Introduction to NRQL.
