This article follows my last post on Installing a Production Ready Consul cluster. This article will touch on Adding SSL/TLS to the Consul api/ui, telemetry backend and encrypting RPC traffic.
Consul’s telemetry function collects various runtime metrics in regards to the performance of various libraries and subsystems. The metrics are aggregated on a ten second interval and have a one minute retention. These metrics can be used for debugging or getting a better view of what Consul is doing.
