the problem might be with the backend server

  • check the health of the backend server to which you are sending the requests
  • check the health of the request your are sending to the server. check if the load balance is configured properly with the backend server
  • check network connection and see if the servers can communicate on other ports and make sure firewall is allowing traffic between them
