|Description:||Set timeout values for receiving request headers and body from client.|
RequestReadTimeout [header=timeout[-maxtimeout][,MinRate=rate] [body=timeout[-maxtimeout][,MinRate=rate]
|Context:||server config, virtual host|
|Compatibility:||Available in version 2.2.15 and later; defaulted to disabled in version 2.3.14 and earlier.|
This directive can set various timeouts for receiving the request headers and the request body from the client. If the client fails to send headers or body within the configured time, a
408 REQUEST TIME OUT error is sent.
For SSL virtual hosts, the header timeout values include the time needed to do the initial SSL handshake. If the user's browser is configured to query certificate revocation lists and the CRL server is not reachable, the initial SSL handshake may take a significant time until the browser gives up waiting for the CRL. Therefore the header timeout values should not be set to very low values for SSL virtual hosts. The body timeout values include the time needed for SSL renegotiation (if necessary).
AcceptFilter is in use (usually the case on Linux and FreeBSD), the socket is not sent to the server process before at least one byte (or the whole request for
httpready) is received. The header timeout configured with
RequestReadTimeout is only effective after the server process has received the socket.
For each of the two timeout types (header or body), there are three ways to specify the timeout:
The time in seconds allowed for reading all of the request headers or body, respectively. A value of 0 means no limit.
Same as above, but whenever data is received, the timeout value is increased according to the specified minimum data rate (in bytes per second).
Same as above, but the timeout will not be increased above the second value of the specified timeout range.
