The health probe API reflects the internal state of the service point's critical path for handling DNS queries. The health of the service point is determined by the following:
- Whether the dns-gateway-service is healthy.
- Whether a version.bind query made from the
status-service to the dns-gateway-service
is resolved and responds with NOERROR.Note: The query is internal and handled by the dns-gateway-service. This query is not forwarded out of the service point.
The health probe can be used when configuring the DNS Edge service point behind load balancers.
Request: GET http://<sp-ip-address>:80/v1/status/health
Where the <sp-ip-address> is the IP address of the service point.
Possible error codes
- 500 INTERNAL SERVER ERROR - One or more health checks failed.
