Setting Connection Timeout for WEB and METRIC Alerts
WEB and METRIC alert types include a
connection_timeout property on the alert definition (see below in
AlertDefinition : source : uri : connection_timeout). This value is in seconds and defaults to 5.0. Use the Ambari REST API by updating the
source block if you need to modify the connection timeout.
For example, to update the
connection_timeout with the API, you need to PUT the entire contents of the
source block with your API call. For example, you need to PUT the following to update the
connection_timeout to 6.5 seconds.
