Istio-proxy http2 stream dependency & priority handling

#1

Hello Everyone,

I hope this is the right forum/category to ask this question, if no, request to please point me to correct.

I’m verifying HTTP/2 transfer (with-prior-knowledge i.e w/o upgrade) from one micro-service to another. Each service has an istio-proxy as a sidecar. When HTTP/2 traffic from pod1(microservice 1) is sent to pod2(microservice2), istio-proxy intercepts it and forwards the request to pod2.

Observation is that at client - pod1, when HTTP/2 transfer is initiated, it shows the stream priority and dependency in pcap towards istio-proxy, but not in the requests from istio-proxy to destination pod. The destination server/application is also not consistent with the stream dependency & priority handling, basically on multiple http/2 transfers the expectation of the server processing the streams is not consistent w.r.t the dependency & priority specified and hence the concern.

Any pointers/comments would be appreciated.
Thanks
