imgproxy comes with a built-in health check HTTP endpoint at
GET /health returns an HTTP Status of
200 OK if the server has been successfully started.
You can use this for readiness/liveness probes when deploying with a container orchestration system such as Kubernetes.
imgproxy provides an
imgproxy health command that makes an HTTP request to the health endpoint based on the IMGPROXY_BIND and IMGPROXY_NETWORK configs. It exits with
0 when the request is successful and with
1 otherwise. The command is handy to use with Docker Compose:
test: [ "CMD", "imgproxy", "health" ]
