Nicely done! We are currently implementing health checks in our microservice platform at work, and have chosen to support two variants:
We added the external check for use by platform monitoring, avoiding the need to have internal network access, and as a way to dynamically record request routing, as we collect service IDs and versions in results. This helps with configuration drift detection / reconciliation in a complex service mesh platform.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
