we are using Kibana4 in development now quite a while and created some rather nice dashboards, containing some a hand full of visualizations.
It happens now or than, that someone want to search for a long period of time, which leads into some big queries that can easily take a few minutes to run.
Unfortunately after exact 4 minutes, the query runs into an timeout and it looks like the query starts again.
Timeout is set to 30 minutes in the kibana.yml
# Time in milliseconds to wait for responses from the back end or elasticsearch. # This must be > 0 request_timeout: 1800000 # Time in milliseconds for Elasticsearch to wait for responses from shards. # Set to 0 to disable. shard_timeout: 0
As you might see in the picture, we are accessing the kibana node directly, without any webserver that could create an timeout.
I also made sure, that the firefox, from which i access kibana4, has the internal timeout disabled, regarding to:
Anyone can give a tipp, what causes the 4 minutes timeout?
