Error message:

Consumer error: HSFTimeOutException


  • Check whether the network of the device is healthy. Check whether the IP address of the provider can be pinged.
  • If the processing time of the provider is greater than 3s, find the service execution timeout logs in hsf.log of the provider, to locate the specific class and method:
    • A serialization error has occurred for the provider. Check the codes: The stream type, file, and oversized objects may cause the serialization error, and cannot be transferred.
    • The code performance is inadequate. Optimize the codes.
    • The logic of the provider is complex, and service processing requires over 3s. Modify the timeout duration. (See the Developer manual.)
  • Timeout happens occasionally, and GC occurs for both the provider and consumer. Check the GC logs of the provider and consumer. GC requiring a long time may result in timeout. For detailed troubleshooting methods, search Java GC optimization on the Internet.
  • The consumer is heavily burdened so that it fails to send the request, resulting in timeout. Add more devices for the consumer.
