Monitoring health status from fastly health checks


Hi fastly team,
I am building our service failure detection.

Is there a way to get information on the status of fastlys health checks?

We expected a log upon an unhealthy event, but my first testing has not shown one.

Thank you,


Hi Malte,

Unfortunately, this is not information that we expose currently. But I’ll point this post out to our product team, so that they can keep your expectations in mind while working out how that information should be exposed.




Hi Doc,
thanks, any method would be fine for me.
For now we run a local health check routine and some extra load monitoring.



Hi, has there been any development on this feature @drwilco? I’m working on the exact same thing.
