Generic TCP proxying?

Hey all, am I right in thinking that I cannot have generic TCP proxying from linkerd? Our services talk to RPC services as well as generic TCP services (DB slaves, etc). Is that something I have to get via https://github.com/linkerd/linkerd-tcp ? This would mean, I would need to run both linkerd and linkerd-tcp which means one more service to run along with the application.

Thanks,
Amit.

Yes, that’s correct. linkerd can proxy HTTP, HTTP/2 (including gRPC), thrift, and mux. For any other TCP traffic you would need to use linkerd-tcp instead.
