Upstream network filters¶
Upstream clusters provide an ability to inject network level (L3/L4) filters. It should be noted that a network filter needs to be registered in code as an upstream filter before usage. Currently, there are no upstream filters available in Envoy out of the box. The filters apply to the connection to the upstream hosts, using the same API presented by listeners for the downstream connections. The write-callbacks are invoked for any chunk of data sent to the upstream host, and the read-callbacks are invoked for data received from the upstream host.
