Linkerd routing


I was able to test Linkerd functionnalities with this example on microk8s :

SMI traffic split on Linkerd2 (

However, in this demo, it’s necessary to apply manually a new traffic-split.yaml (kubectl apply -f traffic-split.yaml) in order to change the weights of the routes.

Is it possible with Linkerd to do that dynamically ?

For example, if the connection with simple-service-v1 is broken, Can I detect the break and route the requests automatically in the direction of simple-service-v2 ?

If yes, Can you explain me how to do that ?
I read a lot of documentation including circuit breaking but I’m not sure that is what I want.

Thank you in advance for your help,
