Clovisor, from OPNFV Clover project, is a cloud independent and CNI-plugin agnostic network tracing module. It augments tracing data from Istio service mesh via providing raw network traces on a per session/transaction basis, and implementing a golang plugin infra to support multiple network protocols.

Clovisor integrates tightly with Kubernetes and Istio, and utilizes IOVisor/goBPF to tap into node and k8s pod interfaces to trace packets, which minimizes impact on kernel packet forwarding. It uses OpenTracing APIs to send to Jaeger tracer its network traces, and features a sample analytic engine to correlate traces from Istio and Clovisor. These resulting consolidated traces are particularly useful for deployments in:
o Hybrid cloud
o Edge computing
o Multi-site deployment

This presentation will give detail introduction to Clovisor, its architecture and design, and will provide a demo
