How can I change my Load Balacer requests timeout?

Posted April 8, 2019 3.4k views

Sometimes, my API (Spring Boot Java Application) needs more than 1 minute to response the request. When that happens, I get 504 gateway timeout error.

If I do a GET request direct to the machine, using its IP, everything works fine. But when I do the same request to the load balancer url, I get the 504 gateway error after 1 minute.

How can I change the load balancer timeout time?

Thank you.

I am having the exact same issue. If I run my Spring Boot application (through a docker container) on the exact same droplet and hit the server directly it runs no problem (taking over 60 seconds). However, when I run on the droplets that are being managed by the Load Balancer and use the Load Balancer URL, I get the 504 Gateway Time-out error after 1 minute every time.

If anyone has the solution to this it would be appreciated. Thanks!

  • Same here. Having the exact same problem. Can someone at DO please respond to this? (even if it is to say that there is no way to change the timeout limit)

This issue is still relevant. Any comment from DO?
