Management API

Alertmanager provides a set of management API to ease automation and integrations.

Health check

GET /-/healthy
HEAD /-/healthy

This endpoint always returns 200 and should be used to check Alertmanager health.

Readiness check

GET /-/ready
HEAD /-/ready

This endpoint returns 200 when Alertmanager is ready to serve traffic (i.e. respond to queries).


POST /-/reload

This endpoint triggers a reload of the Alertmanager configuration file.

An alternative way to trigger a configuration reload is by sending a SIGHUP to the Alertmanager process.
