Kiali integration discovery for Service Mesh monitoring
Problem to solve
As part of GitLab's support of k8s and cloud native development, we want to support service mesh monitoring: &342
While we could and should likely build this directly into GitLab based on our Jaeger and Prometheus integrations, that could take time.
We should explore Kiali to see if there is a way we could leverage this, to more quickly provide service mesh monitoring in GitLab.
We should explore Kiali to see how it could be potentially integrated with GitLab, and importantly how easily. Both from an engineering standpoint, but also from a UX standpoint.
It's important to note that Kiali seems to be the defacto visualization engine for Istio, for example it ships as part of the Helm chart today: https://github.com/istio/istio/tree/master/install/kubernetes/helm/istio/charts/kiali
