Traffic Shadowing

What is Traffic Shadowing?

Traffic shadowing is a routing strategy whereby incoming requests are duplicated and sent to two different destinations. Also called mirroring, traffic shadowing is an emergent progressive delivery technique. With traffic shadowing, a service under development is able to process a copy of incoming requests without impacting end users.
