MeshConfig

MeshConfig defines mesh-wide variables shared by all Envoy instances in the Istio service mesh.

NOTE: This configuration type should be used for the low-level global configuration, such as component addresses and port numbers. It should not be used for the features of the mesh that can be scoped by service or by namespace. Some of the fields in the mesh config are going to be deprecated and replaced with several individual configuration types (for example, tracing configuration).

FieldTypeDescriptionRequired
mixerCheckServerstring

Address of the server that will be used by the proxies for policy check calls. By using different names for mixerCheckServer and mixerReportServer, it is possible to have one set of Mixer servers handle policy check calls while another set of Mixer servers handle telemetry calls.

NOTE: Omitting mixerCheckServer while specifying mixerReportServer is equivalent to setting disablePolicyChecks to true.

No
mixerReportServerstring

Address of the server that will be used by the proxies for policy report calls.

No
disablePolicyChecksbool

Disable policy checks by the Mixer service. Default is false, i.e. Mixer policy check is enabled by default.

No
policyCheckFailOpenbool

Allow all traffic in cases when the Mixer policy service cannot be reached. Default is false which means the traffic is denied when the client is unable to connect to Mixer.

No
sidecarToTelemetrySessionAffinitybool

Enable session affinity for Envoy Mixer reports so that calls from a proxy will always target the same Mixer instance.

No
proxyListenPortint32

Port on which Envoy should listen for incoming connections from other services.

No
proxyHttpPortint32

Port on which Envoy should listen for HTTP PROXY requests if set.

No
connectTimeoutDuration

Connection timeout used by Envoy. (MUST BE >=1ms)

No
protocolDetectionTimeoutDuration

Automatic protocol detection uses a set of heuristics to determine whether the connection is using TLS or not (on the server side), as well as the application protocol being used (e.g., http vs tcp). These heuristics rely on the client sending the first bits of data. For server first protocols like MySQL, MongoDB, etc., Envoy will timeout on the protocol detection after the specified period, defaulting to non mTLS plain TCP traffic. Set this field to tweak the period that Envoy will wait for the client to send the first bits of data. (MUST BE >=1ms)

No
tcpKeepaliveTcpKeepalive

If set then set SO_KEEPALIVE on the socket to enable TCP Keepalives.

No
ingressClassstring

Class of ingress resources to be processed by Istio ingress controller. This corresponds to the value of “kubernetes.io/ingress.class” annotation.

No
ingressServicestring

Name of theKubernetes service used for the istio ingress controller.

No
ingressControllerModeIngressControllerMode

Defines whether to use Istio ingress controller for annotated or all ingress resources.

No
enableTracingbool

Flag to control generation of trace spans and request IDs. Requires a trace span collector defined in the proxy configuration.

No
accessLogFilestring

File address for the proxy access log (e.g. /dev/stdout). Empty value disables access logging.

No
accessLogFormatstring

Format for the proxy access log Empty value results in proxy’s default access log format

No
accessLogEncodingAccessLogEncoding

Encoding for the proxy access log (text or json). Default value is text.

No
enableEnvoyAccessLogServicebool

This flag enables Envoy’s gRPC Access Log Service. See Access Log Service for details about Envoy’s gRPC Access Log Service API.

No
defaultConfigProxyConfig

Default proxy config used by the proxy injection mechanism operating in the mesh (e.g. Kubernetes admission controller) In case of Kubernetes, the proxy config is applied once during the injection process, and remain constant for the duration of the pod. The rest of the mesh config can be changed at runtime and config gets distributed dynamically.

No
outboundTrafficPolicyOutboundTrafficPolicy

Set the default behavior of the sidecar for handling outbound traffic from the application. If your application uses one or more external services that are not known apriori, setting the policy to ALLOWANY will cause the sidecars to route any unknown traffic originating from the application to its requested destination. Users are strongly encouraged to use ServiceEntries to explicitly declare any external dependencies, instead of using allowany, so that traffic to these services can be monitored.

No
enableClientSidePolicyCheckbool

Enables client side policy checks.

No
configSourcesConfigSource[]

ConfigSource describes a source of configuration data for networking rules, and other Istio configuration artifacts. Multiple data sources can be configured for a single control plane.

No
enableAutoMtlsBoolValue

This flag is used to enable mutual TLS automatically for service to service communication within the mesh, default false. If set to true, and a given service does not have a corresponding DestinationRule configured, or its DestinationRule does not have TLSSettings specified, Istio configures client side TLS configuration appropriately. More specifically, If the upstream authentication policy is in STRICT mode, use Istio provisioned certificate for mutual TLS to connect to upstream. If upstream service is in plain text mode, use plain text. If the upstream authentication policy is in PERMISSIVE mode, Istio configures clients to use mutual TLS when server sides are capable of accepting mutual TLS traffic. If service DestinationRule exists and has TLSSettings specified, that is always used instead.

No
trustDomainstring

The trust domain corresponds to the trust root of a system. Refer to SPIFFE-ID

No
trustDomainAliasesstring[]

The trust domain aliases represent the aliases of trust_domain. For example, if we have

trustDomain: td1
trustDomainAliases: ["td2", "td3"]

Any service with the identity td1/ns/foo/sa/a-service-account, td2/ns/foo/sa/a-service-account, or td3/ns/foo/sa/a-service-account will be treated the same in the Istio mesh.

No
defaultServiceExportTostring[]

The default value for the ServiceEntry.export_to field and services imported through container registry integrations, e.g. this applies to Kubernetes Service resources. The value is a list of namespace names and reserved namespace aliases. The allowed namespace aliases are:

  • - All Namespaces . - Current Namespace ~ - No Namespace

If not set the system will use “*” as the default value which implies that services are exported to all namespaces.

‘All namespaces’ is a reasonable default for implementations that don’t need to restrict access or visibility of services across namespace boundaries. If that requirement is present it is generally good practice to make the default ‘Current namespace’ so that services are only visible within their own namespaces by default. Operators can then expand the visibility of services to other namespaces as needed. Use of ‘No Namespace’ is expected to be rare but can have utility for deployments where dependency management needs to be precise even within the scope of a single namespace.

For further discussion see the reference documentation for ServiceEntry, Sidecar, and Gateway.

No
defaultVirtualServiceExportTostring[]

The default value for the VirtualService.exportto field. Has the same syntax as ‘defaultserviceexportto’.

If not set the system will use “*” as the default value which implies that virtual services are exported to all namespaces

No
defaultDestinationRuleExportTostring[]

The default value for the DestinationRule.exportto field. Has the same syntax as ‘defaultserviceexportto’.

If not set the system will use “*” as the default value which implies that destination rules are exported to all namespaces

No
rootNamespacestring

The namespace to treat as the administrative root namespace for Istio configuration. When processing a leaf namespace Istio will search for declarations in that namespace first and if none are found it will search in the root namespace. Any matching declaration found in the root namespace is processed as if it were declared in the leaf namespace.

The precise semantics of this processing are documented on each resource type.

No
localityLbSettingLocalityLoadBalancerSetting

Locality based load balancing distribution or failover settings.

No
dnsRefreshRateDuration

Configures DNS refresh rate for Envoy clusters of type STRICT_DNS

No
disableReportBatchbool

The flag to disable report batch.

No
reportBatchMaxEntriesuint32

When disablereportbatch is false, this value specifies the maximum number of requests that are batched in report. If left unspecified, the default value of reportbatchmax_entries == 0 will use the hardcoded defaults of istio::mixerclient::ReportOptions.

No
reportBatchMaxTimeDuration

When disablereportbatch is false, this value specifies the maximum elapsed time a batched report will be sent after a user request is processed. If left unspecified, the default reportbatchmax_time == 0 will use the hardcoded defaults of istio::mixerclient::ReportOptions.

No
h2UpgradePolicyH2UpgradePolicy

Specify if http1.1 connections should be upgraded to http2 by default. if sidecar is installed on all pods in the mesh, then this should be set to UPGRADE. If one or more services or namespaces do not have sidecar(s), then this should be set to DONOTUPGRADE. It can be enabled by destination using the destinationRule.trafficPolicy.connectionPool.http.h2UpgradePolicy override.

No
inboundClusterStatNamestring

Name to be used while emitting statistics for inbound clusters. By default, Istio emits statistics with the pattern inbound|<port>|<port-name>|<service-FQDN>. For example inbound|7443|grpc-reviews|reviews.prod.svc.cluster.local. This can be used to override that pattern.

A Pattern can be composed of various pre-defined variables. The following variables are supported.

  • %SERVICE% - Will be substituted with name of the service.
  • %SERVICE_FQDN% - Will be substituted with FQDN of the service.
  • %SERVICE_PORT% - Will be substituted with port of the service.
  • %SERVICE_PORT_NAME% - Will be substituted with port name of the service.

Following are some examples of supported patterns for reviews:

  • %SERVICE_FQDN%_%SERVICE_PORT% will use reviews.prod.svc.cluster.local_7443 as the stats name.
  • %SERVICE% will use reviews.prod as the stats name.
No
outboundClusterStatNamestring

Name to be used while emitting statistics for outbound clusters. By default, Istio emits statistics with the pattern outbound|<port>|<subsetname>|<service-FQDN>. For example outbound|8080|v2|reviews.prod.svc.cluster.local. This can be used to override that pattern.

A Pattern can be composed of various pre-defined variables. The following variables are supported.

  • %SERVICE% - Will be substituted with name of the service.
  • %SERVICE_FQDN% - Will be substituted with FQDN of the service.
  • %SERVICE_PORT% - Will be substituted with port of the service.
  • %SERVICE_PORT_NAME% - Will be substituted with port name of the service.
  • %SUBSET_NAME% - Will be substituted with subset.

Following are some examples of supported patterns for reviews:

  • %SERVICE_FQDN%_%SERVICE_PORT% will use reviews.prod.svc.cluster.local_7443 as the stats name.
  • %SERVICE% will use reviews.prod as the stats name.

NetworkEndpoints describes how the network associated with an endpoint should be inferred. An endpoint will be assigned to a network based on the following rules:

  1. Implicitly: If the registry explicitly provides information about the network to which the endpoint belongs to. In some cases, its possible to indicate the network associated with the endpoint by adding the ISTIO_META_NETWORK environment variable to the sidecar.

  2. Explicitly:

a. By matching the registry name with one of the “fromRegistry” in the mesh config. A “from_registry” can only be assigned to a single network.

b. By matching the IP against one of the CIDR ranges in a mesh config network. The CIDR ranges must not overlap and be assigned to a single network.

(2) will override (1) if both are present.

Path to the generated configuration file directory. Proxy agent generates the actual configuration and stores it in this directory.

No
binaryPathstring

Path to the proxy binary

No
serviceClusterstring

Service cluster defines the name for the service_cluster that is shared by all Envoy instances. This setting corresponds to –service-cluster flag in Envoy. In a typical Envoy deployment, the service-cluster flag is used to identify the caller, for source-based routing scenarios.

Since Istio does not assign a local service/service version to each Envoy instance, the name is same for all of them. However, the source/caller’s identity (e.g., IP address) is encoded in the –service-node flag when launching Envoy. When the RDS service receives API calls from Envoy, it uses the value of the service-node flag to compute routes that are relative to the service instances located at that IP address.

No
drainDurationDuration

The mode used to redirect inbound traffic to Envoy. This setting has no effect on outbound traffic: iptables REDIRECT is always used for outbound connections.

NameDescription
REDIRECT

The REDIRECT mode uses iptables REDIRECT to NAT and redirect to Envoy. This mode loses source IP addresses during redirection.

TPROXY

The TPROXY mode uses iptables TPROXY to redirect to Envoy. This mode preserves both the source and destination IP addresses and ports, so that they can be used for advanced filtering and manipulation. This mode also configures the sidecar to run with the CAPNETADMIN capability, which is required to use TPROXY.

k8s.io.api.autoscaling.v2beta1.HorizontalPodAutoscalerSpec

HorizontalPodAutoscalerSpec describes the desired functionality of the HorizontalPodAutoscaler.

FieldTypeDescriptionRequired
scaleTargetRefCrossVersionObjectReference

scaleTargetRef points to the target resource to scale, and is used to the pods for which metrics should be collected, as well as to actually change the replica count.

No
minReplicasint32

minReplicas is the lower limit for the number of replicas to which the autoscaler can scale down. It defaults to 1 pod. minReplicas is allowed to be 0 if the alpha feature gate HPAScaleToZero is enabled and at least one Object or External metric is configured. Scaling is active as long as at least one metric value is available. +optional

No
maxReplicasint32

maxReplicas is the upper limit for the number of replicas to which the autoscaler can scale up. It cannot be less that minReplicas.

No
metricsMetricSpec[]

metrics contains the specifications for which to use to calculate the desired replica count (the maximum replica count across all metrics will be used). The desired replica count is calculated multiplying the ratio between the target value and the current value by the current number of pods. Ergo, metrics used must decrease as the pod count is increased, and vice-versa. See the individual metric source types for more information about how each type of metric must respond. +optional

No

k8s.io.apimachinery.pkg.api.resource.Quantity

Quantity is a fixed-point representation of a number. It provides convenient marshaling/unmarshaling in JSON and YAML, in addition to String() and Int64() accessors.

The serialization format is:

::= (Note that may be empty, from the “” case in .) ::= 0 | 1 | … | 9 ::= | ::= | . | . | . ::= “+” | “-” ::= | ::= | | ::= Ki | Mi | Gi | Ti | Pi | Ei (International System of units; See: http://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Units/binary.html) ::= m | “” | k | M | G | T | P | E (Note that 1024 = 1Ki but 1000 = 1k; I didn’t choose the capitalization.) ::= “e” | “E”

No matter which of the three exponent forms is used, no quantity may represent a number greater than 2^63-1 in magnitude, nor may it have more than 3 decimal places. Numbers larger or more precise will be capped or rounded up. (E.g.: 0.1m will rounded up to 1m.) This may be extended in the future if we require larger or smaller quantities.

When a Quantity is parsed from a string, it will remember the type of suffix it had, and will use the same type again when it is serialized.

Before serializing, Quantity will be put in “canonical form”. This means that Exponent/suffix will be adjusted up or down (with a corresponding increase or decrease in Mantissa) such that: a. No precision is lost b. No fractional digits will be emitted c. The exponent (or suffix) is as large as possible. The sign will be omitted unless the number is negative.

Examples: 1.5 will be serialized as “1500m” 1.5Gi will be serialized as “1536Mi”

Note that the quantity will NEVER be internally represented by a floating point number. That is the whole point of this exercise.

Non-canonical values will still parse as long as they are well formed, but will be re-emitted in their canonical form. (So always use canonical form, or don’t diff.)

This format is intended to make it difficult to use these numbers without writing some sort of special handling code in the hopes that that will cause implementors to also use a fixed point implementation.

k8s.io.apimachinery.pkg.apis.meta.v1.LabelSelector

A label selector is a label query over a set of resources. The result of matchLabels and matchExpressions are ANDed. An empty label selector matches all objects. A null label selector matches no objects.

FieldTypeDescriptionRequired
matchLabelsmap<string, string>

matchLabels is a map of {key,value} pairs. A single {key,value} in the matchLabels map is equivalent to an element of matchExpressions, whose key field is “key”, the operator is “In”, and the values array contains only “value”. The requirements are ANDed. +optional

No

matchExpressions is a list of label selector requirements. The requirements are ANDed. +optional

No

k8s.io.apimachinery.pkg.util.intstr.IntOrString

IntOrString is a type that can hold an int32 or a string. When used in JSON or YAML marshalling and unmarshalling, it produces or consumes the inner type. This allows you to have, for example, a JSON field that can accept a name or number. TODO: Rename to Int32OrString
