Best practices

  • Note The administration endpoint should never be exposed to the public internet. Additionally, we recommend monitoring the administration endpoint logs, which are set by the ENVOY_ADMIN_ACCESS_LOG_FILE environment variable to /tmp/envoy_admin_access.log by default.

  • Note We do not recommend using the debug level in production environments. Setting the level to debug increases the logging and may affect performance and the overall cost of logs offloaded to solutions like CloudWatch Logs.


  • Important Fargate must use a port value greater than 1024.


  • Important While the standard SMTP ports are 25, 587, and 465, you should only add the port you are using to APPMESH_EGRESS_IGNORED_PORTS and not all three.

  • Note Setting the mesh outbound filter value affects all virtual nodes within the mesh.
