Health Check

Health Check set up is limited to Yarkon Server.

When using Yarkon Server, either as an EC2 or a Docker deployment, and using an ELB - which is recommended by AWS - it is best practice to set up a health check, allowing the monitoring environment to verify that the application is alive and well.

With Yarkon Server, you set up a health check by pinging the /version end point, using the same root url you have for the service itself. If the application is running, the expected response is the actual version of the application, and the response code would be 200 (OK).
