Note: Generating a Health Check is currently in beta for GitHub Enterprise Server and subject to change.
You can create a support bundle for your GitHub Enterprise Server instance that contains a lot of data, such as diagnostics and log files. To help analyze and interpret this data, you can generate a Health Check. For more information about support bundles, see "Providing data to GitHub Support."
A Health Check provides the following information about your GitHub Enterprise Server instance.
- Insights into the general health of your GitHub Enterprise Server instance, such as upgrade status, storage, and license seat consumption
- A security section, which focuses on subdomain isolation and user authentication
- Analysis of Git requests, with details about the busiest repositories and Git users
- Analysis of API requests, including the busiest times, most frequently requested endpoints, and most active callers
If you're a Premium Plus customer and want to generate a Health Check for GitHub Enterprise Cloud, contact GitHub Support. For more information, see "Creating a support ticket."
Before you can generate a Health Check, you must create a support bundle. For more information, see "Providing data to GitHub Support."
- Navigate to the GitHub Support portal.
- In the upper-right corner of the page, click Premium.
- To the right of Health Checks, click Request Health Check.
- Under "Select an enterprise account", use the drop-down menu to select an enterprise account.
- Under "Upload a support bundle", click Chose File and choose a file to upload. Then, click Request Health Check.
After you request a Health Check, a job is scheduled to generate the Health Check. After several hours to one day, the generated Health Check will appear in the "Health Checks" section of the GitHub Support portal.
