Drawing inspiration from the aviation industry's use of checklists for ensuring safe flights, we present a session on leveraging checklists and best practices to guarantee the successful operation of Istio in production environments. Join Simon and Ram, seasoned Field (and Flight!) Engineer's at Solo.io, as they share real-world experiences from assisting users with Istio deployments in production. Through a captivating story, you'll gain insights into the challenges faced by an Istio adopter who underestimated the complexities of running a production-scale Istio deployment. In this session, you'll explore the significance of various configuration switches and knobs within Istio. Learn which settings to leave untouched and which require meticulous tuning to optimize system performance. Unravel the mysteries behind crucial parameters like "PILOT_DEBOUNCE_AFTER" and understand how their misconfiguration can lead to unforeseen consequences.
