AzuraCast has some background tasks that are regularly triggered to run internal processing jobs that are neccessary for the operation of your stations.
On this page you will find an overview of all the
Sync Tasks that AzuraCast depends on.
Increasing Execution Timeout
If you are regularly running into timeouts while a sync task is processing you can manually increase the time that the sync tasks are allowed to run via the
azuracast.env look for the following entries and increase the specified time in seconds to your needs.
# The maximum execution time (and lock timeout) for the 15-second, 1-minute and 5-minute synchronization tasks. # SYNC_SHORT_EXECUTION_TIME=600 # The maximum execution time (and lock timeout) for the 1-hour synchronization task. # SYNC_LONG_EXECUTION_TIME=1800
This is how these lines should look like after changing (the values are just for demonstration):
# The maximum execution time (and lock timeout) for the 15-second, 1-minute and 5-minute synchronization tasks. SYNC_SHORT_EXECUTION_TIME=900 # The maximum execution time (and lock timeout) for the 1-hour synchronization task. SYNC_LONG_EXECUTION_TIME=2200
After changing these entries restart your AzuraCast installation via:
docker-compose down docker-compose up -d
