Locality Aware Load Balancing

A multi-zone deployment can enable locality aware load balancing in a particular Mesh to ensure optimal service backend routing. This feature relies on the following service tags to make decisions of selecting the destination service endpoint:

  • - optional, denotes a wider region composed of several zones.
  • - automatically generate in every multi-zone deployment.
  • - optional, denotes service grouping within a particular zone.

Enabling the Locality Aware Load Balancing

A particular Mesh that spans several regions, zones or subzones, may choose to enable locality aware load balancing as follows:

kind: Mesh
  name: default
    localityAwareLoadBalancing: true

We will apply the configuration with kubectl apply -f [..].
