Run endpoint health checks
Magic WAN uses endpoint health checks to determine the overall health of your inter-network connections. Probes originate from Cloudflare infrastructure (outside customer network namespaces) and target IP addresses deep within your network. This process occurs beyond the tunnel-terminating border router, and these “long distance” probes are purely diagnostic.
When choosing which endpoint IP addresses to monitor with health checks, use these guidelines:
- Provide one IP address for each of the prefixes Cloudflare will advertise.
- Redundant IPs routed via the same ISP and infrastructure are not necessary but are useful when troubleshooting.
Refer to the table below for an example endpoint health check configuration.
