I happened to stumble across this earlier today –
If this is indeed true (" # stdio is a debug adapter in istio-telemetry, it is not recommended for production use."), it feels like something that needs to be called out as a caution in the documentation:
I only ask because I am literally two days from promoting into production a telemetry logging setup that uses stdio with a fluentd container log scraper to gather Istio mesh logs into the logging system.
Am I going to have a bad day?
