Connect Timeout

Set a connect timeout to determine how long an edge server should try making the initial connection to your origin server.

How it works

If the edge server can't connect to your origin before the timeout expiration, a 504 Gateway Timeout error is returned to the client.

Note that this timeout is separate from the Read Timeout behavior, which covers the time it takes for an HTTP response to be returned from your origin server after the connection between the edge server and your origin has been established.

Timeout You can set the connection timeout from 1 second through 599 seconds, or from 1 through 9 minutes. This value should never be zero. The default value is 5 seconds.
