We are wondering what the healthcheck for the bitbucket data center app instance /status is checking when its reporting
Is it only checking if the process is up? We want to make sure this is the appropriate healthcheck as we have noticed inaccurate results.
The "state" field can have a few different values, depending on whether the application is still starting up, is in "setup" mode or is available.
A state of "running" does not guarantee that the application is "healthy", it just means that it is able to serve requests. It's possible for a plugin to be broken and requests for that plugin to be failing, but other requests are fine.
For effective monitoring you should also keep an eye on the exception rate in the logs, as well as how many HTTP error responses it returns.
Just to add to Wolfgang's response, here's a list of possible status values:
