» Health HTTP Endpoint

The /health endpoints query health-related information. They are provided separately from the /catalog endpoints since users may prefer not to use the optional health checking mechanisms. Additionally, some of the query results from the health endpoints are filtered while the catalog endpoints provide the raw entries.

» List Checks for Node

This endpoint returns the checks specific to the node provided on the path.

Method Path Produces
GET /health/node/:node application/json

The table below shows this endpoint's support for blocking queries, consistency modes, agent caching, and required ACLs.

Blocking Queries Consistency Modes Agent Caching ACL Required
YES all none node:read,service:read

» Parameters

  • node (string: <required>) - Specifies the name or ID of the node to query. This is specified as part of the URL

  • dc (string: "") - Specifies the datacenter to query. This will default to the datacenter of the agent being queried. This is specified as part of the URL as a query parameter.

  • filter (string: "") - Specifies the expression used to filter the queries results prior to returning the data.

  • ns (string: "") - (Enterprise Only) Specifies the namespace to list checks. This value may be provided by either the ns URL query parameter or in the X-Consul-Namespace header. If not provided at all, the namespace will default to the default namespace. To view checks for multiple namespaces the * wildcard namespace may be used. Added in Consul 1.7.0.

» List Nodes for Connect-capable Service

This endpoint returns the nodes providing a Connect-capable service in a given datacenter. This will include both proxies and native integrations. A service may register both Connect-capable and incapable services at the same time, so this endpoint may be used to filter only the Connect-capable endpoints.

Method Path Produces
GET /health/connect/:service application/json

Parameters and response format are the same as /health/service/:service.

» List Checks in State

This endpoint returns the checks in the state provided on the path.

Method Path Produces
GET /health/state/:state application/json

  • state (string: <required>) - Specifies the state to query. Supported states are any, passing, warning, or critical. The any state is a wildcard that can be used to return all checks.

  • dc (string: "") - Specifies the datacenter to query. This will default to the datacenter of the agent being queried. This is specified as part of the URL as a query parameter.

  • near (string: "") - Specifies a node name to sort the node list in ascending order based on the estimated round trip time from that node. Passing ?near=_agent will use the agent's node for the sort. This is specified as part of the URL as a query parameter.

  • node-meta (string: "") - Specifies a desired node metadata key/value pair of the form key:value. This parameter can be specified multiple times, and will filter the results to nodes with the specified key/value pairs. This is specified as part of the URL as a query parameter.

  • filter (string: "") - Specifies the expression used to filter the queries results prior to returning the data.

  • ns (string: "") - (Enterprise Only) Specifies the namespace to query. This value may be provided by either the ns URL query parameter or in the X-Consul-Namespace header. If not provided at all, the namespace will default to the default namespace. Added in Consul 1.7.0.
