Hi folks,

 

As you know, there are two timeout settings in Apache.

One is Timeout which means Amount of time the server will wait for certain events before failing a request.

Another is KeepAliveTimeout that means Amount of time the server will wait for subsequent requests on a persistent connection

 

I know there is persistent connection idle timeouts at Akamai. One is the idle timeout for the connections between the Akamai edge servers and the origin.  Another is the idle timeouts between the clients and the Akamai edge servers.

 

The typical flow of the requests would be:

 

Client <-(1)-> Akamai Edge <-> Akamai Parent <-(2)-> The Origin          

 

The idle timeouts for (1) is 500 seconds.  The idle timeout for (2) is 5 minutes.

 

My question is that Does Akamai have Timeout setting that amount of time the server will wait for certain events before failing a request as well?

 

Thanks,

 

Tony
