So I’m running on Elastic BeanStalk. This was not my decision, but corporate policy due to a need to use our certificates with HTTPS. In any case, that’s the situation.
Elastic BeanStalk runs a “health check” every 10 seconds and it just requests the root path – this ends up being rather expensive, since my app is large and firing it up every 10 seconds is overkill for a health check.
I would like to create a
/health route that the app can respond to with a simple
200 OK without downloading the entire app.
Is this possible?
