Using the health check API
To check the status of the Gateway, you can use the health check web API (/apphealth in the Gateway) to ping the public interface to verify that important services are running.
To check the Gateway's health, use the health check URL with any browser, with curl on the Gateway's public interface, or from a load balancer.
$ curl -k https://bcgateway.example.com/apphealth
Responses contain JSON strings with additional data, which may include HTTP status codes where possible.
