Question

What are the health_check default values for timeouts/thresholds?

I’ve looked at https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/references/app-specification-reference/ and seen that you can customise various timeouts/thresholds for the healthcheck, such as initial_delay_seconds, and timeout_seconds etc.

It would be useful to know what the defaults are for these variables - are these documented anywhere? I can’t seem to find that.

Hello,

The defaults for the service health checks are as follows:

initial_delay_seconds: 0
period_seconds: 10
timeout_seconds: 1  
success_threshold: 1 
failure_threshold: 9

Hope this helps.

We will update the app spec documentation soon.
