Platform Setup for Istio

1. Create Kubernetes cluster

Create a local cluster using Kind or Minikube as follows, or use a managed Kubernetes cluster. Ensure that the cluster has sufficient resources, for example, 8 CPUs and 12GB of memory.

kind create cluster --wait 5m
kubectl cluster-info --context kind-kind
Ensuring your Kind cluster has sufficient resources

Your Kind cluster inherits the CPU and memory resources of its host. If you are using Docker Desktop, you can set its resources as shown below.

Resources

minikube start --cpus 8 --memory 12288

git clone https://github.com/iter8-tools/iter8.git
cd iter8
export ITER8=$(pwd)

3. Install Istio, Iter8 and Telemetry
