Good rest engine lb endpoint and version check endpoint

Is there a lightweight endpoint for the rest engine that a load balancer can hit? slash just 404’s and doing open port checks isn’t an option.

Also, I’d like to be able to get the current version hitting an endpoint, the data in META-INF/MANIFEST.MF would be ideal.

Looking through the rest engine api docs doesn’t seem to be any data about the build number or version or anything else baked in.

Thanks for any thoughts.


I don’t know of an API which returns version etc. A few benign requests could be;

get engine - returns a list of defined engines.

get metrics - may have the advantage of hitting the DB and thus you know that the stack is alive…
