Deploying a demo version of the telemetry add-ons
The YAML files to deploy a demo version of Prometheus, Grafana, and Kiali are available in the Istio GitHub repository. Although these YAML files make it easy for you to deploy an instance of Prometheus, Grafana and Kiali to your cluster, these files aren't meant to take the place of installing and configuring the applications yourself.
To deploy a demo version of the add-ons to your cluster:
Clone the repo:
git clone -b release-1.10 https://github.com/istio/istio --depth 1
Deploy an instance of the add-ons:
To deploy Grafana:
kubectl apply -f istio/samples/addons/grafana.yaml
To deploy Kiali:
kubectl apply -f istio/samples/addons/kiali.yaml
To deploy Prometheus:
kubectl apply -f istio/samples/addons/prometheus.yaml
If you need to delete the add-ons, you can do so with the
kubectl delete -f
Istio provides a set of preconfigured dashboards for Grafana. These dashboards are included in the demo version. You can also import the dashboards into an existing Grafana deployment.
