Health API - BlueCat DNS Edge

DNS Edge User Guide

Product name
BlueCat DNS Edge
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.
