Welcome to the Passenger Status Service. This is a service provided by Phusion for the Passenger application server. This service makes Passenger status reports (the passenger-status tool) work on Heroku.

The problem with Passenger status reports on Heroku

Passenger status reports are gathered by running a the passenger-status tool, which queries a Passenger instance running on the same machine. However, Heroku does not provide SSH access to the servers on which your app is running, so it is not possible to run the passenger-status tool to obtain a status report from Passenger. The heroku console command spawns a one-off dyno instead of granting you access to the running servers, so that doesn't work either.
