I'm experiencing random timeouts to some Api endpoints (Fitness, Drupal). all the API endpoints from Google App Engine.

You can check this odd behavior using these links:


All the Stack Exchange app[s] hosted on Google App Engine should be affected by the same problem.

Please star this issue!


We've looked into this, and there's literally nothing different between api.drupal and api.stackoverflow.

Without more to go on, we're forced to assume this is a GAE problem.

  • are you confirming that, when stackprinter gets a timeout, you are not seeing any calls to your end? – systempuntoout Mar 8 '11 at 22:37

    @systempuntoout - its hard to correlate a failing call on a server I don't control with any showing up in our logs. However, I can confirm that nothing that's gotten to the API from StackPrinter in the last few days has taken longer than 343 milliseconds (that's max, typical is in the 30-40 range). – Kevin Montrose Mar 10 '11 at 18:01
  • finally fixed :) – systempuntoout Mar 23 '11 at 7:56
  • Who or what is "GAE"? And what was "the" fix? – Pierre.Vriens Apr 12 '15 at 17:43
  • GAE stands for Google App Engine – clodal Jun 20 '19 at 14:10
