linkerd-version: stable-2.7.0 - followed the getting-started guide
I’m currently performance testing Linkerd and Istio in GKE cluster. I use Jmeter to generate a constant throughput to see how both service meshes preforms. I’m currently having a problem to reach high throughput when using Linkerd.
Without Linkerd generating ruffly 500 req/sec before the VM cpu hits the ceiling
With Linkerd the throughput get stuck at 90 req/sec with a VM cpu load ruffly at 40 %.
Can’t find the problem why the throughput is low, do I need to configure Linkerd to use more cpu?
All tips are welcome!
