Re: Richer health-checks for CF apps: request for use cases

Aaron Huber

Just as a reference you could look at some of the connection tests that Monit

Obviously there are quite a few there so it might go well beyond what's
reasonable for container health checking.

I think to meet our use cases the addition of the HTTP check already
mentioned would be sufficient but to add to it, I could imagine that it
might be useful to be able to specify a regular expression to search for in
the returned HTML instead of or in addition to the status code.

Also, since you guys are expanding into offer TCP routing for containers, a
generic TCP monitor that looked for a specific regular expression in the
returned data might be useful, which might also require specifying data to
send to trigger a response.
