Check whether hosts are reachable on certain ports and return result on HTTP
Its intended purpose is to be a bridge server for services that can only probe container or application health on HTTP. Oh, and it's just a single binary that works everywhere!
This tool is a very simple web server that takes requests on HTTP to check
whether they are connectable on a provided port. It returns
200 OK by default if
the port is connectable and
503 Service Unavailable if it isn't.
Just grab one of the statically linked builds from the Releases page and you're good to go!
All you have to do to run proby is to just call it:
If you don't like the default interface and port of proby, you can change it like this:
proby -i 127.0.0.1 -p 9000
This makes proby listen only on the local loopback interface at port 9000.
Example request for checking whether port 1337 is connectable on host example.com:
curl localhost:8080/example:1337 example:1337 is connectable
This will return 200 if it is connectable and 503 if it isn't.
You can also use IPv4s or IPv6s, of course:
curl localhost:8080/184.108.40.206:1337 curl localhost:8080/2001:4860:4860::8888:1337
If you'd like to customize the return codes, you can do so by setting the
bad like so:
You can also configure a timeout (in seconds) using:
The default timeout is one second.
proby 1.0.2 Sven-Hendrik Haase <email@example.com> Check whether hosts are reachable on certain ports and return result on HTTP USAGE: proby [FLAGS] [OPTIONS] FLAGS: -h, --help Prints help information -q, --quiet Be quiet (log nothing) -V, --version Prints version information -v, --verbose Be verbose (log data of incoming and outgoing requests). If given twice it will also log the body data OPTIONS: -i, --interfaces <interfaces>... Interface to bind to [default: 0.0.0.0] -p, --port <port> Port on which to listen [default: 8080]
You need a recent stable version of Rust and Cargo installed.
Then just type
cargo build --release
After the build, a binary will appear here:
This is mostly a note for me on how to release this thing:
cargo release --dry-run
- Releases will automatically be deployed by Github Actions.
- Docker images will automatically be built by Docker Hub.
- Update AUR package.
