Circuit breaker question

This is a silly example but if I call a service external to my company like can I set up circuit breaker for that call? My meshed service has to call an external service and would like to add curcuit breaker to the call in case their service has problems.

is it not possible do I need to use Hystrix or something?

Linkerd’s circuit breaking is performed among the different possible Endpoints for a given Service. So that’s mainly thought for inner-cluster traffic, but maybe you can have this work for external services, by declaring a Service without selectors, and manually adding its EndpointSlices pointing to the differents possible backends…

ok thank you that’s what it sounded like reading the docs just wanted to make sure.

Hey @alpeb Thank you !
