this is a re-post from slack.
To reduce long-tail latency of a service, we’d like to configure linkerd to retry requests after a timeout. The docs seem to focus on retries after 50x responses, so I was wondering if this is possible?
When using linkerd in front of an Elasticsearch cluster, it’d be useful to be able to retry all failed requests, not just idempotent ones. Elasticsearch search requests are usually submitted as POST requests, despite having GET semantics, since the query is transmitted in the body. Is this possible?
