Join Layer5 at DevConf.cz 2022 as we share on our CNCF projects Meshery and Service Mesh Performance. Bring your questions. We have answers. Engage with us in our talks!
Benchmarking a service mesh and your workload’s performance is no simple task. Questions arise like:
This talk answers these questions by empowering attendees with at-hand tooling for continual evaluation of their service mesh environment and a reflection of how service mesh deployment models affect performance.
Engineers adopting microservice architectures are quickly faced with distributed systems challenges and in need of implementing rate limiting, circuit breaking, timeouts, retries, and implementing metrics, logging and tracing into each service is no simple task. Enter the service mesh.
What is a service mesh? Why do you need one? What types of service meshes are available? How do they contrast?
Learn how Meshery, a CNCF Project, multi-service mesh management plane implements the service mesh specifications, Service Mesh Performance (SMP) and Service Mesh Interface (SMI), to empower users to manage more than 10 service meshes simultaneously.
Understand how Meshery uses a catalog of Service Mesh Patterns to provide templates for best practice configurations and how you can design new patterns with the visual topology designer, MeshMap
Attendees will be empowered with the ability to quickly deploy different service meshes in which they may learn how service meshes function and how each differs from the next, so that they may select the best-fit-for-purpose service mesh for their workloads and their environment. It will be very helpful for experienced service mesh operators seeking to learn best practices through service mesh design patterns.

Which service mesh should I use and how do I get started? What are the different service meshes, and how do they contrast? Learn about the functionality of different service meshes and visually manipulate mesh configuration.
This talk introduces Meshery, an open source, multi-service mesh management plane that provisions (ten and counting) different service meshes, their sample applications and how it benchmarks the performance of service mesh deployments. Meshery facilitates benchmarking various configuration scenarios of any service mesh, comparison of performance of services (applications) on and off the mesh and across different meshes. It vets mesh and service configurations against deployment best practices. Some of the service mesh projects use Meshery as their performance benchmark tool for each release.
With the increasing prevalence of microservice-based distributed systems, this is true: the network, as a discipline, has never been so critical in the efficient operation of cloud-native deployments. Network primitives including load balancing, observability, authentication, authorization, policies, rate limiting, QoS, mesh networks, traditional infrastructure bridging, and so on are now being developed and invested by the entire industry, and are the focus of the Service Mesh Working Group withing the CNCF TAG Network.
Listen to our introduction and get an in-depth understanding of the service mesh projects being managed within the working group.
Join the Meshery Project Office Hours at KubeCon China 2021 to learn more about the CNCF's latest service mesh project and its maintainers.
Come and discover why Meshery is the easiest way to get started with 10+ service meshes!
Join the Service Mesh Performance Project Office Hours at KubeCon China 2021 and get introduced to the new standard of cloud native performance characterisation and to its open source maintainers.
Learn what Service Mesh Performance is and how Meshery's implementation uses it to measure the performance of any service mesh available.
本次演讲旨在介绍 Meshery， 一款开源的多服务网格管理平面，它提供了市面上（至少10个）不同的服务网格产品的生命周期管理，示例应用程序以及开箱即用的服务网格的性能基准测试功能。 Meshery有能力在各种不同的场景下对任意的服务网格进行性能基准测试的能力，比较不同应用程序在服务网格内外以及不同服务网格之间的性能。它可以根据服务网格的最佳实践来审查网络和服务配置。越来越多的服务网格项目使用Meshery作为每个版本的性能基准测试工具。
随着基于微服务的分布式系统越来越流行，网络作为一门学科，在云原生的高效部署和运行中变得越来越重要已然成为了不可动摇的事实。包括负载均衡，可观察性，鉴权，授权，策略，限速，QoS，Mesh网络，传统基础设施桥接等，正在被整个行业大力发展和投资，这些也是CNCF TAG Network的Service Mesh Working Group的重点。

Join Layer5 at ServiceMeshCon North America 2021. ServiceMeshCon is a vendor-neutral conference on service mesh technologies. Topics include getting started with and adopting a mesh, lessons learned from production deployments, and technical sessions from service mesh maintainers.
Infrastructure diversity is a reality for many organizations. It’s predicted that by 2022, 90% of all apps will feature microservices architectures. A huge range of microservice patterns drives a world of multiple service meshes. As various service meshes have proliferated infrastructures, service mesh patterns and abstractions have emerged. We will break down 60 service mesh patterns into different categories of use, demonstrating and examining a select few using Meshery for deeper review of their problems they solve, discussing caveats, and highlighting anti-patterns.
The patterns discussed are being published in Service Mesh Patterns (O’Reilly) by Lee Calcote and Nic Jackson.

Join Layer5 at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon EU Virtual 2021. Engage with us in our talks and booth!
“It’s the network!” is the cry of every system administrator, every developer. With the increased prevalence of microservice-based distributed systems, it’s true - networking as a discipline has never been more critical in the efficient operation of cloud native deployments. Networking primitives, including load balancing, observability, authentication, authorization, policy, rate limiting, QoS, mesh networks, legacy infrastructure bridging, and so on are now receiving substantial development and investment throughout the industry and are the subject of focus of the CNCF Network SIG.
Our Project Office Hours will be the Project Pavilion at 03:00pm (Central European Time) on Tuesday, May 4, 2021.
Project Office Hours is an opportunity for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon attendees to meet the maintainers of the projects, learn more about the project, ask questions, learn about new features and upcoming updates.
Service Mesh performance characterization has been an elusive aspect of understanding the impact of mesh in production. While few studies have been published, mesh performance generally is highly influenced by runtime environment, hardware settings, test tool & methodology used to benchmark. Based on various tests performed on Envoy, this presentation aims to shed light on: -Performance characterization methodology of Envoy for deterministic throughput & latency -Gaps in benchmark tools - disconnect between L2 to L7 optimizations for load generation & features WIP to address these gaps, e.g. with Nighthawk.- Common pitfalls in measurements - Usual culprits for lack of consistency in benchmarks - Impact of scaling Envoy on latency & hardware utilization - Share benchmark results & common bottlenecks using Envoy sandboxes - Customizing Envoy for telco grade performance with hardware offloads
