Go Health Check

An easy to use, extensible health check library for Go applications.

Table of Contents

Example

package main

import (
    "net/http"
    "database/sql"
    "time"

    "github.com/dimiro1/health"
    "github.com/dimiro1/health/url"
    "github.com/dimiro1/health/db"
    "github.com/dimiro1/health/redis"
    _ "github.com/go-sql-driver/mysql"
)

func main() {
    database, _ := sql.Open("mysql", "/")
    mysql := db.NewMySQLChecker(database)
    timeout := 5 * time.Second

    companies := health.NewCompositeChecker()
    companies.AddChecker("Microsoft", url.NewChecker("https://www.microsoft.com/"))
    companies.AddChecker("Oracle", url.NewChecker("https://www.oracle.com/"))
    companies.AddChecker("Google", url.NewChecker("https://www.google.com/"))

    handler := health.NewHandler()
    handler.AddChecker("Go", url.NewCheckerWithTimeout("https://golang.org/", timeout))
    handler.AddChecker("Big Companies", companies)
    handler.AddChecker("MySQL", mysql)
    handler.AddChecker("Redis", redis.NewChecker("tcp", ":6379"))

    http.Handle("/health/", handler)
    http.ListenAndServe(":8080", nil)
}
$ curl localhost:8080/health/

If everything is ok the server must respond with HTTP Status 200 OK and have following json in the body.

{
    "Big Companies": {
        "Google": {
            "code": 200,
            "status": "UP"
        },
        "Microsoft": {
            "code": 200,
            "status": "UP"
        },
        "Oracle": {
            "code": 200,
            "status": "UP"
        },
        "status": "UP"
    },
    "Go": {
        "code": 200,
        "status": "UP"
    },
    "MySQL": {
        "status": "UP",
        "version": "10.1.9-MariaDB"
    },
    "Redis": {
        "status": "UP",
        "version": "3.0.5"
    },
    "status": "UP"
}

The server responds with HTTP Status 503 Service Unavailable if the ckeck is Down and the json response could be something like this.

{
    "Big Companies": {
        "Google": {
            "code": 200,
            "status": "UP"
        },
        "Microsoft": {
            "code": 200,
            "status": "UP"
        },
        "Oracle": {
            "code": 200,
            "status": "UP"
        },
        "status": "UP"
    },
    "Go": {
        "code": 200,
        "status": "UP"
    },
    "MySQL": {
        "status": "DOWN",
        "error": "Error 1044: Access denied for user ''@'localhost' to database 'invalid-database'",
    },
    "Redis": {
        "status": "UP",
        "version": "3.0.5"
    },
    "status": "DOWN"
}

Motivation

It is very important to verify the status of your system, not only the system itself, but all its dependencies, If your system is not Up you can easily know what is the cause of the problem only looking the health check.

Also it serves as a kind of basic integration test between the systems.

Inspiration

I took a lot of ideas from the spring framework.

Installation

This package is a go getable package.

$ go get github.com/dimiro1/health

API

The API is stable and I do not have any plans to break compatibility, but I recommend you to vendor this dependency in your project, as it is a good practice.

Testing

You have to install the test dependencies.

$ go get gopkg.in/DATA-DOG/go-sqlmock.v1
$ go get github.com/rafaeljusto/redigomock

or you can go get this package with the -t flag

go get -t github.com/dimiro1/health

Implementing custom checkers

The key interface is health.Checker, you only have to implement a type that satisfies that interface.

type Checker interface {
    Check() Health
}

Here is an example of Disk Space usage (unix only).

package main

import (
    "syscall"
    "os"
)

type DiskSpaceChecker struct {
    Dir       string
    Threshold uint64
}

func NewDiskSpaceChecker(dir string, threshold uint64) DiskSpaceChecker {
    return DiskSpaceChecker{Dir: dir, Threshold: threshold}
}

func (d DiskSpaceChecker) Check() health.Health {
    health := health.NewHealth()

    var stat syscall.Statfs_t

    wd, err := os.Getwd()

    if err != nil {
        health.Down().AddInfo("error", err.Error()) // Why the check is Down
        return health
    }

    syscall.Statfs(wd, &stat)

    diskFreeInBytes := stat.Bavail * uint64(stat.Bsize)

    if diskFreeInBytes < d.Threshold {
        health.Down()
    } else {
        health.Up()
    }

    health.
        AddInfo("free", diskFreeInBytes).
        AddInfo("threshold", d.Threshold)

    return health
}

Important

The status key in the json has priority over a status key added by a Checker, so if some checker adds a status key to the json, it will not be rendered

Implemented health check indicators
