Dashboard Timeout - Data might be incomplete because your request timed out

Hi Team,

I am getting timeout error "Data might be incomplete because your request timed out" while retrieving 12.5GB of data in Kibana dashboard.
timeout increased from 30000 to "elasticsearch.requestTimeout: 90000" .
Please suggest if i need to tune any other parameters .

@jbudz I think the data size here too much for Kibana to handle?


Hi Bhavya, I don't think so, i belive some parameter have to tune...i tried increasing memory and also enabled below two options but still getting the same error.
elasticsearch.requestTimeout: 90000
elasticsearch.shardTimeout: 60000

Hey - those are the correct options for increasing the wait time. They'll work up to a maximum of two minutes. Beyond that we usually start looking into why the queries are taking so long and what we can optimize. Some of the parameters you're thinking of include:

  • number of visualizations in the dashboard
  • chart intervals (the more data points, the more load)
  • cluster load. how's the hardware on the cluster looking?
  • shard settings for the indices you're querying? too many shards and we'll see slow queries

I'd +1 @bhavyarm - 12.5gb is a lot to handle. It's going to cause significant strain on the browser that has to load all of this in memory, so less data would be ideal in addition any optimizations we can do.

Thanks Jon. I just added below parameter and also increased the RAM. So far no timeout occurred.

  1. elasticsearch.shardTimeout: 30000
    2 . Xms24g -Xmx24g" [Recommendation is 30G-will increase more in the future.]
