Welcome to Kuma

Welcome to the documentation for Kuma, a modern distributed Control Plane for service mesh with a bundled Envoy proxy integration.

The word “Kuma” means “bear” in Japanese (クマ).

The core maintainer of Kuma is Kong, the maker of the popular open-source Kong Gateway 🦍.

There’s a new docs page that explains how your Kuma deployment collects data: what data is collected, and how to turn off data collection. See data collection.
