» /v1/operator

The /operator endpoint provides cluster-level tools for Nomad operators, such as interacting with the Raft subsystem.

See the Outage Recovery guide for some examples of how these capabilities are used. For a CLI to perform these operations manually, please see the documentation for the nomad operator command.

» Read Raft Configuration

This endpoint queries the status of a client node registered with Nomad.

Method Path Produces
GET /v1/operator/raft/configuration application/json

The table below shows this endpoint's support for blocking queries and required ACLs.

Blocking Queries ACL Required
NO management

» Parameters

  • stale - Specifies if the cluster should respond without an active leader. This is specified as a querystring parameter.

» Sample Request

$ curl \
    https://localhost:4646/v1/operator/raft/configuration

» Sample Response

{
  "Index": 1,
  "Servers": [
    {
      "Address": "127.0.0.1:4647",
      "ID": "127.0.0.1:4647",
      "Leader": true,
      "Node": "bacon-mac.global",
      "RaftProtocol": 2,
      "Voter": true
    }
  ]
}

» Field Reference

  • Index (int) - The Index value is the Raft corresponding to this configuration. The latest configuration may not yet be committed if changes are in flight.

  • Servers (array: Server) - The returned Servers array has information about the servers in the Raft peer configuration.

    • ID (string) - The ID of the server. This is the same as the Address but may be upgraded to a GUID in a future version of Nomad.
    • Node (string) - The node name of the server, as known to Nomad, or "(unknown)" if the node is stale and not known.
    • Address (string) - The ip:port for the server.
    • Leader (bool) - is either "true" or "false" depending on the server's role in the Raft configuration.
    • Voter (bool) - is "true" or "false", indicating if the server has a vote in the Raft configuration. Future versions of Nomad may add support for non-voting servers.

  "ModifyIndex": 4
}
  • CleanupDeadServers (bool: true) - Specifies automatic removal of dead server nodes periodically and whenever a new server is added to the cluster.

  • LastContactThreshold (string: "200ms") - Specifies the maximum amount of time a server can go without contact from the leader before being considered unhealthy. Must be a duration value such as 10s.

  • MaxTrailingLogs (int: 250) specifies the maximum number of log entries that a server can trail the leader by before being considered unhealthy.

  • ServerStabilizationTime (string: "10s") - Specifies the minimum amount of time a server must be stable in the 'healthy' state before being added to the cluster. Only takes effect if all servers are running Raft protocol version 3 or higher. Must be a duration value such as 30s.

  • EnableRedundancyZones (bool: false) - (Enterprise-only) Specifies whether to enable redundancy zones.

  • DisableUpgradeMigration (bool: false) - (Enterprise-only) Disables Autopilot's upgrade migration strategy in Nomad Enterprise of waiting until enough newer-versioned servers have been added to the cluster before promoting any of them to voters.

  • EnableCustomUpgrades (bool: false) - (Enterprise-only) Specifies whether to enable using custom upgrade versions when performing migrations.

» Read Health

This endpoint queries the health of the autopilot status.

Method Path Produces

}
  • Healthy is whether all the servers are currently healthy.

  • FailureTolerance is the number of redundant healthy servers that could be fail without causing an outage (this would be 2 in a healthy cluster of 5 servers).

  • Servers holds detailed health information on each server:

    • ID is the Raft ID of the server.
    • Name is the node name of the server.
    • Address is the address of the server.
    • SerfStatus is the SerfHealth check status for the server.
    • Version is the Nomad version of the server.
    • Leader is whether this server is currently the leader.
    • LastContact is the time elapsed since this server's last contact with the leader.
    • LastTerm is the server's last known Raft leader term.
    • LastIndex is the index of the server's last committed Raft log entry.
    • Healthy is whether the server is healthy according to the current Autopilot configuration.
    • Voter is whether the server is a voting member of the Raft cluster.
    • StableSince is the time this server has been in its current Healthy state.

The HTTP status code will indicate the health of the cluster. If Healthy is true, then a status of 200 will be returned. If Healthy is false, then a status of 429 will be returned.
