Health Checking

Contour exposes two health endpoints /health and /healthz. By default these paths are serviced by 0.0.0.0:8000 and are configurable using the --health-address and --health-port flags.

e.g. --health-port 9999 would create a health listener of 0.0.0.0:9999

Note: the Service deployment manifest when installing Contour must be updated to represent the same port as the above configured flags.

The health endpoints perform a connection to the Kubernetes cluster’s API.
