Extend the platform, empower your team.
Automated distributed tracing, metrics & logs for Istio Service Mesh.
With Dynatrace you get full observability for Istio Service Mesh without touching any code thanks to auto-instrumentation. Seamless end-to-end traces and logs for microservices and sidecar-proxies will help you to better understand the potential anomalies that may impact your mission-critical applications. Comprehensive metrics give you insights into topology and the control-plane and data-plane of your Istio mesh. Dynatrace automatically analyzes detects and diagnoses problems in your microservices or Istio mesh in real-time and pinpoints the root cause thanks to our proprietary AI engine.
For Istio metric ingest and dashboards, simply activate the extension in your environment using the in-product Hub, follow the configuration steps and you’re all set up.

Note: When deep monitoring for Envoy is enabled, Dynatrace will disable previously configured third-party tracers, in the process of automatically discovering and configuring distributed tracing for all Envoy proxies alongside your workloads within your mesh. This will not impact the distributed tracing insight you get in Dynatrace, but it will make Istio stop exporting trace data to third-party locations you might have previously configured.
It is already on our roadmap to achieve full interoperability and allow sending traces to Dynatrace without impacting third-party tracers.
