Fdbbackup expire timing out


often when attempting to perform a fdbbackup expire call to purge all backups, the call fails with an error indicating a time out when in the Describing backup or Listing files phase. There is no alternative than to retry the call over and over again until it goes through.

Is there a knob that can be tuned to increase the time out or force fdbbackup to perform multiple attempts?

Found out the timeouts could be modified in the blobstore URL, using the connect_tries, connect_timeout and request_timeout_min parameters. That did the trick.
