Linkerd support on Hooking


Does LINKERD provides support on Hooking [Methodology to augment a service request with additional information to let the load balancing and dynamic routing algorithms properly route it, WITHOUT needing to change the invocating or serving service itself.)


Hi @runnikri,

  • Linkerd can use custom identifier plugins to do routing based on any attribute of the request
  • There is not a mechanism for requests to provide hints to the load balancer, although requests may specify routing overrides with weights

Hope this helps!
