Active Health checking

#1

Dear all,

the Istio doc is saying that Istio can do ACTIVE health check of the services (https://istio.io/docs/concepts/traffic-management/#handling-failures). Can someone explain how this is happening, and how can we influence that behaviour (what configuration options do we have)?

Thank you,
Laszlo

no, this is wrong. active health checking is not supported now. But you can set outlierDetection to enable passive healthcheck

Is it fair to say we don’t have envoy active health check today, however, user can add health check via liveness prod in their k8s pod to have k8s master to health check the pods periodically?
