Traffic Management

OSM’s traffic management stack support two distinct traffic policy modes, namely SMI traffic policy mode and permissive traffic policy mode. The traffic policy mode determines how OSM routes application traffic between pods within the service mesh. Additionally, ingress and egress functionality allows external access to and from the cluster respectively.
