Query regarding admin/ping/

Will /admin/ping return pong successfully even when (during startup) it is still conducting activities such as setting up listeners, querying the namer to setup the backend routes, etc?


@amitsaha Running through a quick test, it looks like the admin/ping endpoint is only available once Linkerd is fully initialized.


It however seems like it returns pong even when it has trouble setting up the clients (consul unreachable for example).

Yes that is correct. The admin/ping health check is only used to check if linkerd is up and not any of the downstream clients it relies on.
