Pinging a Pega 7 Platform instance

Updated on September 14, 2015

You can verify whether a Pega 7 Platform instance is up and running by entering this URL: http://<<hostName:port/contextName>>/PRRestService/monitor/pingservice/ping

The Pega 7 Platform Engine responds with HTTP Response Code 200 if the instance is available. The response contains JSON text in the format { "duration":"<time in milliseconds>" }. Any other response codes or timeout indicate that the instance is unavailable.

Load balancers can be configured to use this ping service for their health checks. F5 Big IP can use the URL in creating a health monitor, and AWS Elastic Load Balancer can reference the URL in its Health Check.
