Server Information

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

Server Information endpoint

Send an HTTP GET request to the server information endpoint:

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

This endpoint always returns an HTTP 200.

If a secret token is set, only requests including authentication will receive server details.

Set the Accept header set to text/plain to move the server information to the root level of the response, removing ok.

Example

Example server information request:

curl http://127.0.0.1:8200/

{
  "ok": {
    "build_date": "2018-07-27T18:49:58Z",
    "build_sha": "bc4d9a286a65b4283c2462404add86a26be61dca",
    "version": "7.0.0-alpha1"
  }
}
