Install the Cloud Foundry health_manager, a mandatory component of a Cloud Foundry installation.



  • Ubuntu

Tested on:

  • Ubuntu 10.04
  • Ubuntu 12.04


  • cloudfoundry
  • cloudfoundry-cloud_controller
  • rbenv


This cookbook will install the CloudFoundry Health Manager on the target node along with the necessary configuration files and init scripts to run it. Because the database required by a Health Manager is shared with the CloudController, you need to use the cloudfoundry-cloud_controller::database recipe from the cloudfoundry-cloud_controller cookbook to setup the Health Manager's database. Assuming you're running a Health Manager on the same machine as your Cloud Controller, typical usage in a recipe will look like so:

include_recipe "cloudfoundry-cloud_controller"
include_recipe "cloudfoundry-health_manager"


  • node['cloudfoundry_health_manager']['log_level'] - The Health Manager's log level. Default is info".
  • node['cloudfoundry_health_manager']['log_file'] - Where to write the Health Manager's logs. Default is File.join(node['cloudfoundry']['log_dir'], "health_manager.log").
  • node['cloudfoundry_health_manager']['pid_file'] - Where to write the Health Manager's pid file. Default is File.join(node['cloudfoundry']['pid_dir'], "").
  • node['cloudfoundry_health_manager']['database_scan'] - TODO (trotter): Find out what this does. Default is 60.
  • node['cloudfoundry_health_manager']['droplet_lost'] - TODO (trotter): Find out what this does. Default is 30.
  • node['cloudfoundry_health_manager']['droplet_analysis'] - TODO (trotter): Find out what this does. Default is 10.
  • node['cloudfoundry_health_manager']['flapping_death'] - TODO (trotter): Find out what this does. Default is 3.
  • node['cloudfoundry_health_manager']['flapping_timeout'] - TODO (trotter): Find out what this does. Default is 180.
  • node['cloudfoundry_health_manager']['restart_timeout'] - TODO (trotter): Find out what this does. Default is 20.
  • node['cloudfoundry_health_manager']['stable_state'] - TODO (trotter): Find out what this does. Default is 60.
