RSS timeout RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    A week or so ago we had a non-Sharepoint issue that killed our outside connection.  OUr Sharepoint home page has three RSS feeds on it.  This took several minutes to display becouse it was trying to get the RSS dat.

    Is there a way to set a timeout on the RSS requests so that the page "fails" better"?

  • Hi,

    Thanks to share your post.

    For the issue, my suggestion is that you can try to set the timeout settings.

    Firstly, try to run the followed admin:

    stsadm -o setproperty -pn database-connection-timeout -pv the time you want to set

    And then you may also set the timeout in the search administration, please follow this article for the details:


    Hope this could help you!
