16:13 Jun Hi, I got a problem in retrieving some data from Prosite
16:14 Jun Prosite is a very slow database. How can I set the program to wait for longer time other than fail after 20 sec?
16:14 Jun I tried $ua->timeout, but it doesnot work...
16:14 deafferret is it using LWP::UserAgent?
16:15 Jun yep
16:15 pyrimidine the $ua->timeout setting should work
16:15 deafferret so what does $ua->timeout(50000) do?
16:17 Jun ok, it works now ...
16:17 pyrimidine the default timeout for LWP::UA is 3 minutes; I don't think GenericWebAgent resets that
16:17 Jun yep, the default value is 180 secs
16:17 Jun This is the weird thing, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnot ...
16:18 deafferret sometimes what works?
16:18 pyrimidine could be a redirect issue
16:18 deafferret perhaps sometimes their server is crap and sometimes it's not?
16:18 deafferret load balancing / routing?
16:18 deafferret add a retry?
16:18 Jun what is balancing?
16:19 deafferret I can have 10 servers that all do whatever Prosite does. I can stick a network device in front of those 10 servers, and spread the load out over those 10 servers
16:19 deafferret so it looks like 1 server, but is really 10
16:20 Jun ok, it makes sense
16:20 pyrimidine can always try $ua->show_progress(1) to see what if anything is happening
16:20 Jun ** GET http://expasy.org/cgi-bin/align​er?format=fasta&psa=PS51092 ==> 500 Can't
16:20 Jun connect to expasy.org:80 (connect: Operation now in progress) (21s)
16:20 Jun Yep, I used that. And here is the error message
16:25 Jun Anyway, it works ok now. I will finish the test and add some SKIP in the test...
16:26 pyrimidine looking that error up, seems like the problem is server-side
16:29 Jun maybe
16:31 Jun maybe I should add "retry" at some stage
16:31 Jun Now all the retrieval only performs once
16:39 Jun There must be something wrong.... THe error pops up again. And it is still there after I tried a few times using LWP::UserAgent
16:39 Jun But After I visit the website using the same URL with firefox, the script works immediately
16:40 Jun Is it possible that the server is blocking LWP::UserAgent at some way?
16:41 deafferret the script works over and over again after a single hit from Firefox?
16:55 Jun ok, it works again at the moment... so weird...
