How to extend the timeout value for proxied HTTP request by Grafana to go beyond 30s

  • What Grafana version and what operating system are you using?

  • What are you trying to achieve?
    Extend the timeout value for my HTTP request, proxied by the Grafana server to timeout at 60s, instead of 30s.

  • How are you trying to achieve it?

  • What happened?
    It is timing out after 30s.

Hi guys,

Silly question here. I am trying to create a Grafana datasource that uses the Grafana server’s backend service to make HTTP request for me. I do noticed that the request are timing out at 30th second instead of the usual 60 seconds.

Is there a configuration I can make to increase this? Since HTTP specification suggests the timeout to be 60 second.

how do you know it wont time out yet again at 60? probably revisit what it is you are trying to do

@yosiasz, thanks for your response.

My query takes around 30-31 seconds on average to execute. I chose 60 as the timeout value because it aligns with the default timeout specified in the HTTP specification.

I do not have control over the server performing the query. Hope it helps.

which specification? can you post documentaion

@yosiasz A mistake on my side about the specs.

Do you have answer to my question?
