Blue Matador vs Kiali: What are the differences?
Developers describe Blue Matador as "An automated monitoring and alerting platform". For time-strapped, agile tech teams, monitoring tools are too manual. Understanding baselines, fine-tuning thresholds, and examining visualizations for defects requires significant time and toil. But unlike all the other monitoring tools on the market, it eliminates the need to manually configure alerts. After a quick setup it instantly discovers all of your resources, automatically creates hundreds of alerts out-of-the-box, and proactively notifies you of critical production issues. On the other hand, Kiali is detailed as "Service mesh observability and configuration". It is an observability console for Istio with service mesh configuration capabilities. It helps you to understand the structure of your service mesh by inferring the topology, and also provides the health of your mesh.
