Configuring Route Timeouts
After installing OKD and deploying a router, you can configure the default timeouts for an existing route when you have services in need of a low timeout, as required for Service Level Availability (SLA) purposes, or a high timeout, for cases with a slow back end.
oc annotate command, add the timeout to the route:
# oc annotate route <route_name> \ --overwrite haproxy.router.openshift.io/timeout=<timeout><time_unit>
For example, to set a route named
myroute to a timeout of two seconds:
# oc annotate route myroute --overwrite haproxy.router.openshift.io/timeout=2s
Supported time units are microseconds (us), milliseconds (ms), seconds (s), minutes (m), hours (h), or days (d).
