Increase or decrease cupertino timeout per application

Dear all, i want as how can i programatically increase or decrease cupertino timeout per application. When we try to follow this link it doesn’t work.

I can only change it from VHost.xml but it will affect all application on our wowza server. Is there possible doing it per application.


  • we using wowza 4.7.7 version.

  • This problem caused on Wowza Edge application

You should be able to do that per application based on the forum links you shared @Iyus Dedi Putra:

Are you using mediaCache?

You could try increasing the httpReadTimeout & httpConnectionTimeout values, but if the remote server is overloaded, then it would just cause a longer delay before resetting.

<!-- HTTP connection timeout -->






@Rose Power-Wowza Community Manager, actually we wanted to change the value because there is log said,

LiveMediaStreamReceiver.doWatchdog: streamTimeout

HTTPStreamerAdapterCupertinoStreamer.service: Request timeout: 8000

both in live streaming and VOD, the CPU will increase till the wowza service unavailable. After that happen we restart the wowza server for temporary solution.

from the default value like the link above but it’s doesn’t work on wowza 4.7.7 version.
