I would like to start working on the Healthchecker

1) Enable configuration of the portname to which run health checks on (this should also tackle
AURORA-321 )
This seems like a very small change consisting of adding a new variable named „port“ to
the HealthCheckConfig  in with a default value of „health“ to be backwards compatible.
Any pitfalls? Any objections?

2) There’s at least one ticket in jira that’s about making the endpoints for the health
check configurable. I would like to have a health check that works on HTTP Status Codes, and
there might be other people that are fine with a health check that works on checking if it’s
possible to make a TCP connection

For my use case I would probably be fine, if I add a variable „method“ to the HealthCheckConfig,
with a  default value of „classic“ for the current behavior and<>.
like „statuscode“ for a check that’s very very similar to the current one in
but instead of parsing the response checks the status code (with the downside that the endpoints
/health /abort /quitquitquit are still hardcoded)

Any ideas how this can be a little bit more generic, so that if we have 3-5 different types
of health checks we can have different arguments to each health check? (e.g. expected_response
for the current one, expected_code for the status code checker, and maybe<>.
like max_response_time for defining how fast traffic has to appear on a tcp connection check)

A side question: for me it seems like /health and (/abort & /quitquitquit) are not very
closely related. Does it make sense to have those 3 things grouped in the HealthCheck?
