Manages an HTTP health check within GCE. This is used to monitor instances behind load balancers. Timeouts or HTTP errors cause the instance to be removed from the pool. For more information, see the official documentation and API.

Example Usage

resource "google_compute_http_health_check" "default" {
  name         = "test"
  request_path = "/health_check"

  timeout_sec        = 1
  check_interval_sec = 1
