Server information APIedit

The APM Server exposes an API endpoint to query general server information. This lightweight endpoint is useful as a server up/down health check.

Server Information endpointedit

Send an HTTP GET request to the server information endpoint:

http(s)://{hostname}:{port}/

This endpoint always returns an HTTP 200.

If API keys or a Secret token is configured, requests to this endpoint must be authenticated.
