»Nomad Autoscaler HTTP API

The Nomad Autoscaler exposes a small, simple API to be used for health checking the agent and obtaining metric data.

»Health API

This endpoint can be used to query the Nomad Autoscaler agent aliveness. If the agent is alive, the request will return a 200 OK, otherwise it will return a 503 ServiceUnavailable.

MethodPathProduces
GET/v1/healthapplication/json

»Sample Request

$ curl https://localhost:8080/v1/health

»Metrics API

The /metrics endpoint returns metrics for the current Nomad Autoscaler process.

MethodPathProduces
