Does the load balancer ever time out requests? If so, what is that limit?

Load Balancing

I need requests to last up to 15 minutes, will the load balancer timeout the request before then or no?

  • I believe load balancers only relay traffic to end'points and as such shouldn’t have any such limits asside from bandwidth. Your best bet is to test it out and see what happens.

@bfields did you ever found out? I’m having the same question!

I believe if you’re using SSL termination that it will timeout. I’m having this issue on a large file upload, and am getting a 504 Gateway Time-Out error
