Debug/Diagnostic information about the application and JVM instance is published in the health check status page. In the health check status page, the following information is printed in the JSON format:

  • Memory
  • Operating system
  • Class loading
  • Compilation
  • Threading
  • CPU Utilization
  • Deployment version
  • Storage
  • Saml
  • System properties

How to access the health check status page?

From the browser, invoke the URL ‘http://hostname:port/debug’ (Example: http://localhost:8080/debug). 

You will see the css enabled pretty format JSON response printed on the browser which contains the JVM diagnostic information.

Health Check – JSON format

If you would like to see the response in the raw JSON format then invoke the URL with the parameter ‘accept=json’

(Example: http://hostname:port/debug?accept=json).
