Check the Health Status of a Neptune Cluster

Amazon Neptune provides a mechanism to check the status of the graph database on the host. It's also a good way to confirm that you are able to connect to a cluster or instance.

To check the health of a cluster by using the curl command:

curl -G http://your-neptune-endpoint:8182/status

The status command returns the following if the cluster or instance is healthy:


If there is a problem with the Neptune DB instance, the status command returns the HTTP 500 error code. If the host is unreachable, the request times out. Ensure that you are accessing the Neptune DB instance from within the virtual private cloud (VPC) and that your security groups allow access to the Neptune DB instance.
