Istio telemetry vs Rancher Native telemetry tools

  • We are heavily reliant on istio-mesh workloads operating things in gke and now looking for options to build own kubernetes cluster with leveraging Rancher for multiple purposes

  • One of the discussion we are debating on to whether to continue to use istio based telemetry or else switch to Rancher telemetry

Just wanted to get clarity of thoughts and see which might be suitable first class option to go for when we have both istio-mesh as well as Rancher as well in our workloads

Any guidance or support would be highly appreciated.
