Now you can control connection pool configuration in your mesh and leverage outlier detection functionality that simplifies implementing circuit breaker capabilities and helps to build applications resilient to connection errors. AWS App Mesh is a service mesh that provides application-level networking to make it easy for your services to communicate with each other across multiple types of compute infrastructure. AWS App Mesh standardizes how your services communicate, giving you end-to-end visibility and helping to provide high availability for your applications. 

With the connection pool configuration for your service mesh, you can limit the number of simultaneous connections or requests to your application endpoints. The outlier detection feature enables your service to track the health status of individual hosts in each of its upstream services and temporarily stop routing traffic to hosts that exhibit elevated errors. Connection pool configuration and outlier detection enable you to limit the impact of failures, latency spikes and network fluctuations on your application behavior.
