Container for the parameters to the CreateVirtualNode operation. Creates a virtual node within a service mesh.

A virtual node acts as a logical pointer to a particular task group, such as an Amazon ECS service or a Kubernetes deployment. When you create a virtual node, you can specify the service discovery information for your task group.

Any inbound traffic that your virtual node expects should be specified as a listener. Any outbound traffic that your virtual node expects to reach should be specified as a backend.

The response metadata for your new virtual node contains the arn that is associated with the virtual node. Set this value (either the full ARN or the truncated resource name: for example, mesh/default/virtualNode/simpleapp) as the APPMESH_VIRTUAL_NODE_NAME environment variable for your task group's Envoy proxy container in your task definition or pod spec. This is then mapped to the and node.cluster Envoy parameters.

If you require your Envoy stats or tracing to use a different name, you can override the node.cluster value that is set by APPMESH_VIRTUAL_NODE_NAME with the APPMESH_VIRTUAL_NODE_CLUSTER environment variable.

For more information about virtual nodes, see Virtual Nodes.
