# Metadata query v2 protocol provides the layer-based query to various services monitored by SkyWalking ecosystem.
# It would adopt multiple-layer modern cloud native infrastructure.
# In the v9 core, v1 protocol is provided on the top of the v2 implementation.
# The v1's services, Databases, Browsers are all services with layer=general, layer=database, layer=browser.
# Each service would have native definition about instance and endpoint.
# Service is a logic concept, representing a collection of runnable context.
type Service {
# Service ID = BASE64(name) + '.1' which keeps the most compatibility to 8.x data formats.
# All metrics of the service would refer to this ID.
# The layer ID would not be included in the service ID, as a service could have multidimensional monitoring, such as ALS + DP for the same service
# ----- Storage -----
# Row ID in service_traffic entity includes layer ID.
# Service ID = BASE64(name) + '.' + Layer ID

# Typically, name could be formated as `group::name` which would be recognized as a group and a short name.

# Layer represents an abstract framework in the computer science, such as operation system(VM layer), Kubernetes(k8s layer),
# Service Mesh(typical Istio+Envoy layer).
# The name of layer is a string, but we would reserve the following for visualization(UI)
# UI uses this literal layer names to provide various layout for their services with metrics.
# The layer collection is from the instances of this service. So, one service could have multiple layer due to instance-level registration.

# Unnormal service is conjectural service, usually detected by the agent.

# A service, as a logic unit, have multiple instances in the runtime.
# Such as, an OS-level processor, a pod in k8s, a running function in the FAAS engine.
