Overview

Note:

When making an API call, you may pass HealthCheckConfig data as a hash:

{
  type: "HTTP", # required, accepts HTTP, HTTPS, TCP
  resource_path: "ResourcePath",
  failure_threshold: 1,
}

*Public DNS and HTTP namespaces only.* A complex type that contains settings for an optional health check. If you specify settings for a health check, Cloud Map associates the health check with the records that you specify in `DnsConfig`.

If you specify a health check configuration, you can specify either `HealthCheckCustomConfig` or `HealthCheckConfig` but not both.

Health checks are basic Route 53 health checks that monitor an Amazon Web Services endpoint. For information about pricing for health checks, see [Amazon Route 53 Pricing].

Note the following about configuring health checks.

A and AAAA records

: If `DnsConfig` includes configurations for both `A` and `AAAA`

records, Cloud Map creates a health check that uses the IPv4 address
to check the health of the resource. If the endpoint tthat's
specified by the IPv4 address is unhealthy, Route 53 considers both
the `A` and `AAAA` records to be unhealthy.

CNAME records

: You can't specify settings for `HealthCheckConfig` when the

`DNSConfig` includes `CNAME` for the value of `Type`. If you do, the
`CreateService` request will fail with an `InvalidInput` error.

Request interval

: A Route 53 health checker in each health-checking Amazon Web

Services Region sends a health check request to an endpoint every 30
seconds. On average, your endpoint receives a health check request
about every two seconds. However, health checkers don't coordinate
with one another. Therefore, you might sometimes see several
requests in one second that's followed by a few seconds with no
health checks at all.

Health checking regions

: Health checkers perform checks from all Route 53 health-checking

Regions. For a list of the current Regions, see [Regions][2].

Alias records

: When you register an instance, if you include the

`AWS_ALIAS_DNS_NAME` attribute, Cloud Map creates a Route 53 alias
record. Note the following:

* Route 53 automatically sets `EvaluateTargetHealth` to true for
  alias records. When `EvaluateTargetHealth` is true, the alias
  record inherits the health of the referenced Amazon Web Services
  resource. such as an ELB load balancer. For more information, see
  [EvaluateTargetHealth][3].

* If you include `HealthCheckConfig` and then use the service to
  register an instance that creates an alias record, Route 53
  doesn't create the health check.

#failure_thresholdInteger

The number of consecutive health checks that an endpoint must pass or fail for Route 53 to change the current status of the endpoint from unhealthy to healthy or the other way around. For more information, see [How Route 53 Determines Whether an Endpoint Is Healthy] in the *Route 53 Developer Guide*.

end

#resource_pathString

The path that you want Route 53 to request when performing health checks. The path can be any value that your endpoint returns an HTTP status code of a 2xx or 3xx format for when the endpoint is healthy. An example file is `/docs/route53-health-check.html`. Route 53 automatically adds the DNS name for the service. If you don't specify a value for `ResourcePath`, the default value is `/`.

If you specify `TCP` for `Type`, you must not specify a value for `ResourcePath`.

end

#typeString

The type of health check that you want to create, which indicates how Route 53 determines whether an endpoint is healthy.

You can't change the value of `Type` after you create a health check.

You can create the following types of health checks:

  • HTTP: Route 53 tries to establish a TCP connection. If successful, Route 53 submits an HTTP request and waits for an HTTP status code of 200 or greater and less than 400.

  • HTTPS: Route 53 tries to establish a TCP connection. If successful, Route 53 submits an HTTPS request and waits for an HTTP status code of 200 or greater and less than 400.

    If you specify HTTPS for the value of `Type`, the endpoint must support TLS v1.0 or later.

  • TCP: Route 53 tries to establish a TCP connection.

    If you specify `TCP` for `Type`, don't specify a value for `ResourcePath`.

For more information, see [How Route 53 Determines Whether an Endpoint Is Healthy] in the *Route 53 Developer Guide*.
