The built-in health check reports the status of DAP Servers (Master and Standbys).
When you are scaling and managing DAP, the health check helps you determine when DAP Servers are up and ready for traffic. The health check reports the following information about a DAP Server:
Status of each service running on the DAP Server.
Status of the internal database on the DAP Server.
Status of replication.
Overall status of the DAP Server.
You can request health checks against any cluster node using the Conjur API. These routes do not require authentication.
For more information, see Health Check.

Log into the UI. See User Interface.
Click the Tools icon in the top right corner.
Select Conjur Cluster.
The window lists nodes and health for each one in the following categories: Services, Database, Replication Status, and Free Space. The Good status indicates healthy.
