Agent Health Check API
Note: Using this feature requires atleast version
17.11.0 of the GoCD server and agent.
The health check API allows users to monitor if the agent is connected to the server and is authorized to perform a build.
The API uses the following configurable agent system properties.
|go.agent.status.api.enabled||Defaults to true. Set to false to disable health check api end-point|
|go.agent.status.api.bind.host||Defaults to localhost.Set to a specific ip address or hostname to bind to that host. Set to 0.0.0.0 to bind to all network interfaces.|
|go.agent.status.api.bind.port||Defaults to 8152. Set to 0 to use an ephemeral port, which will be displayed in a log statement.|
*In case the http server is unable to bind (usually because of port conflicts, or multiple agents running on the same machine), a warning will be emitted to the console log and agent startup will continue.
Configuring Health API for multiple Agents on a Single Machine
In case of multiple agents running on a single machine, the user must explicitly configure the
go.agent.status.api properties for each of the agents.
On Linux Machine
To configure the properties on linux machine, edit the file corresponding to the agent at /etc/default/go-agent
Or have the following property set in the agent shell
On Windows Machine
Follow the instructions to add a new property for GoCD agents setup on windows
