Re: [mosquitto-dev] Implementing health check for containerized MQTT server application?

I'm not sure I made my question clear, I'm not talking about setting up health checks for the mosquito message broker itself, I'm talking about a pattern for setting up health checks for a worker program that subscribes to MQTT messages, does work, and possibly posts a message in response.

http_dir directory

    When a listener is using the websockets protocol, it is possible to serve http data as well. Set http_dir to a directory which contains the files you wish to serve. If this option is not specified, then no normal http connections will be possible.

I've written a number of server applications that perform work based on MQTT subscriptions and deployed those applications in Docker containers.  What I haven't done yet is set up container health checking for those applications.  I was wondering what patterns for health checking people have found effective? These applications don't have any interface besides the MQTT subscriptions and published response - no REST API.
