HTTP Health Checks
An HTTP-layer health check sends an HTTP OPTIONS request to the server and expects to get a successful response. To enable it, add
option httpchk to the
backend be_myapp option httpchk server srv1 192.168.1.5:80 check
Checks are sent using GET to the URL / by default.
You can change the HTTP method and URL by specifying them on the
option httpchk line. In the following example, checks are sent using GET to the URL /healthz:
backend be_myapp option httpchk GET
/healthzserver srv1 10.0.0.1:80 check server srv2 10.0.0.2:80 check
If the response status code is in the 2xx or 3xx range, the server is healthy.
