This is the maximum number of times the crawler will retry connecting to a given URL if it experiences a network timeout while trying to connect.

The crawler will wait for the value of crawler.request_timeout in between each request to avoid overloading the server.

Setting the key

Set this configuration key in the search package or data source configuration.

Use the configuration key editor to add or edit the crawler.max_timeout_retries key, and set the value. This can be set to any valid Integer value.

Default value



Increase value so that three attempts will be made to contact the URL.
