Linkerd is an open source network proxy designed to be deployed as a service mesh, or a dedicated layer for managing, controlling, and monitoring service-to- service communication within an application. Linkerd gives service owners the freedom to choose whichever language is most appropriate for their service. By decoupling communication mechanics from application code, linkerd allows visibility and control over these mechanics without changing the application itself.

Linkerd adds visibility, control, and reliability to application environments with a wide array of powerful techniques that include circuit-breaking, latency-aware load balancing, eventually consistent-advisory service discovery, deadline propagation, and tracing and instrumentation. Linkerd automatically instruments top-line service metrics such as request volume, success rates, and latency distributions to provide a resilient service mesh for cloud native applications.
