Origin Responsiveness Monitoring: Timeouts
When defining Origin Responsiveness Monitoring in your Origin Failure Recovery Policy, you need to establish a Timeout configuration. Three preset values are offered—Aggressive, Moderate, or Conservative—or you can apply a User Specified Timeout in seconds.
This timeout is a threshold that's used to trigger a retry or a recovery action. For example, if the timeout was five seconds, a request to your primary origin that meets or exceeds this time would trigger the retry or recovery action.
The preset thresholds
Each of the preset thresholds has a default time for the trigger, in seconds.
The User Specified threshold
This is relatively self-explanatory. Select this threshold and define the amount of time to trigger the retry or failover, in the User Specified Timeout (seconds) field that's revealed.
