Linkerd is a *service mesh*, designed to give platform-wide observability, reliability, and security without requiring configuration or code changes. The Linkerd [CNI plugin](https://linkerd.io/2/features/cni/) takes care of setting up your pod's network so incoming and outgoing traffic is proxied through the data plane.
Prometheus, a CNCF project, is a systems and service monitoring system. It collects metrics from configured targets at given intervals, evaluates rule expressions, displays the results, and can trigger alerts if some condition is observed to be true.
This chart bootstraps a Prometheus deployment on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.
