Information About Helm Chart Probes

I have been experimenting with the Kong helm chart and I’m looking for more information about the the default probe endpoint which is HTTP /:metrics/status

Mainly I’m wondering if this status endpoint will truly serve as a useful probe endpoint or if I should modify the default to hit something else.

My assumption based on the port (9542) that this is some sort of Prometheus integration/plugin which is enabled. However, I can’t find any code or documentation relating to what this port exposes or what that status endpoint does.
