Service Mesh performance characterization has been an elusive aspect of understanding the impact of mesh in production. While few studies have been published, mesh performance generally is highly influenced by runtime environment, hardware settings, test tool & methodology used to benchmark. Based on various tests performed on Envoy, this presentation aims to shed light on: -Performance characterization methodology of Envoy for deterministic throughput & latency -Gaps in benchmark tools - disconnect between L2 to L7 optimizations for load generation & features WIP to address these gaps, e.g. with Nighthawk -Common pitfalls in measurements -Usual culprits for lack of consistency in benchmarks -Impact of scaling Envoy on latency & hardware utilization -Share benchmark results & common bottlenecks using Envoy sandboxes -Customizing Envoy for telco grade performance with hardware offloads
