Sidecar

The Speedscale sidecar proxy, goproxy, is used to collect data from an existing application. To capture traffic, requests to and from your application will need to be routed through the proxy.

Installation

There are several ways to install the sidecar in your cluster. See the proxy configuration reference for proxy configuration outside of a cluster.

From the Speedscale web app click on Add service to launch the add service wizard which will walk you through configuration and verification tailored to your environment.

Removal

If you already have the sidecar installed, but you need for it to be removed, you may either set the sidecar.speedscale.com/inject annotation to false, or remove it:

annotations:
sidecar.speedscale.com/inject: "false"

After deploying or patching your deployment, you should notice your container count decrease by one and the sidecar is no longer attached.

Use speedctl uninstall to remove all Speedscale components.
