In Anthos Service Mesh 1.8 and later, the
aren't included in any Anthos Service Mesh profiles. Installation of these third-party
add-ons was removed from the 1.8
IstioOperator API, which means that they
can't be installed with the
istioctl install command. For information on why
the add-ons were removed, see
Reworking our Addon Integrations.
Note, however, you can install your own instance of Prometheus, Kiali, and Grafana dashboards according to the applicable third-party documentation.
Enabling metrics export to Prometheus
To use the Prometheus, Grafana, or Kiali dashboards, Anthos Service Mesh must be configured to export metrics to Prometheus. Metrics export to Prometheus is enabled by default when you install Anthos Service Mesh on Anthos clusters on VMware or on bare metal. On these platforms, you are all set to install your own instance of the dashboards.
You can enable metrics export to Prometheus on GKE on Google Cloud clusters, but the steps for doing that differs depending on whether your clusters are in the same project or in different projects.
Copy and paste the following YAML to a file called
apiVersion: install.istio.io/v1alpha1 kind: IstioOperator spec: values: telemetry: enabled: true v2: enabled: true prometheus: enabled: true stackdriver: enabled: false
Follow the steps in Installing Anthos Service Mesh on GKE to use a Google-provided script to install or upgrade Anthos Service Mesh. When you run the script, include the following option:
./install_asm \ --project_id PROJECT_ID \ --cluster_name CLUSTER_NAME \ --cluster_location CLUSTER_LOCATION \ --mode install \ --output_dir DIR_PATH \ --enable_all \ --custom_overlay prometheus-metrics-export.yaml
Be sure to specify any other overlay files that you need to configure Anthos Service Mesh.
Complete the Anthos Service Mesh installation to enable automatic sidecar proxy injection on your workloads. For details, see Deploying and redeploying workloads.
--set stackdriver.enabled=falseto the
istioctl installcommand. Be sure to include any other overlay files that you need to enable optional features. For example:
istioctl install \ -f asm/istio/istio-operator.yaml \ -f asm/istio/options/multiproject.yaml \ -f asm/istio/options/multicluster.yaml\ --set prometheus.enabled=true \ --set stackdriver.enabled=false \ --set revision=asm-1118-4
Complete the Anthos Service Mesh installation to enable automatic sidecar proxy injection on your workloads.
You can deploy Prometheus and Grafana through the Cloud Marketplace or refer to the following documentation for installation.
