There is a filter for endpoint in isito metrics?

Hello guys,
I just want to know if there is something like “filter by endpoint” on istio metrics.
I’m usign prometheus for scraping metrics at one of our apps and i’m using the istio_requests_total metric to know the number of requests… but a question was raised…this requests consider health checks ?
If true, there is a way to filter it?


You can add health checks ports to excludeInboundPorts in sidecar injector configs to remove these requests from your mesh network.

If you want to have them anyway and filter them in queries you can use Prometheus expressions to ignore them.
