Subject: DIfferentiate between socket connect timeout and Webserver response timeout
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 398b
Scenario: you wish to call one of several servers which will complete the TCP handshake in under a second, but then take a minute to return the data. If one of the servers is down, you want to swiftly switch to a different server, without waiting the full minute for the response timeout. Could libwww be updated to add in a new connect_timeout attribute which defaults to the current timeout ?
