Metrics provide important information about the performance and health of the apps in your service mesh, such as the time a request takes to be routed to your app or endpoints in your mesh that are currently unavailable. You can use these measures to detect failures, troubleshoot bottlenecks, and to find ways to improve the performance and reliability of the services in your mesh.
