Change our default monitoring port


#1

In our global helm configuration, we are currently using port 9093 as default. This has caused port conflict issues for a number of users, especially who uses Kafka which also often uses port 9093. (And it is not easy to debug this prob, can take days.)

monitoring port used by mixer, pilot, galley

monitoringPort: 9093

Anyone have objection if we change this to a different port that is not commonly used?

It may be also a good idea to add a table to the install page on istio.io summarising the list of ports used by Istio control plane components. Something like this (from Kubernetes documentation):

Thanks, I opened https://github.com/istio/istio.io/issues/3113 to track this. If you could provide a handy link to k8s doc, that would be great!

Great, here we go: https://kubernetes.io/docs/setup/independent/install-kubeadm/#check-required-ports. I add it to the issue on github.
