Health & liveness checks

Health & liveness checks are supported via the MicroProfile Health extension. They can be configured via the Camel Health API or via Quarkus MicroProfile Health.

All configured checks are available on the standard MicroProfile Health endpoint URLs:

There’s an example project which demonstrates health checks: https://github.com/apache/camel-quarkus-examples/tree/main/health

Note that the /q path prefix was added in Camel Quarkus 2.0.0. Refer to the migration guide for more information.

Camel Quarkus OpenTelemetry extension integrates with the Quarkus OpenTelemetry extension. All you need to do is set up the required configuration properties and an OpenTelemetryTracer will get automatically added to the registry for Camel to use.

There’s an example project demonstrating the above features here: https://github.com/apache/camel-quarkus-examples/tree/main/observability
