Abort requests that are taking too long; a Timeout::Error will be raised.
Rails 3 app or Rails 2.3 app with Bundler
# Gemfile gem "SystemTimer", :require => "system_timer", :platforms => :ruby_18 gem "rack-timeout"
Rails 2.3 app without Bundler
# config/environment.rb config.gem "SystemTimer", :lib => "system_timer" if RUBY_VERSION < "1.9" config.gem "rack-timeout"
Sinatra and other Rack apps
# config.ru require 'rack/timeout' use Rack::Timeout Rack::Timeout.timeout = 10 # this line is optional. if omitted, default is 15 seconds.
Setting a custom timeout for Rails apps
# config/initializers/timeout.rb Rack::Timeout.timeout = 10 # seconds
Here be dragons
SystemTimer/timeout rely on threads. If your app or any of the libraries it depends on is not thread-safe, you may run into issues using rack-timeout.
