Timeout for current action.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone ;)

I'll explain what I'm trying to achieve briefly:

I run several websites and am running pilots for a new framework on a few server.
I have a certain script set us like a bunch of checkboxes, one of which checks a URL for it's status response set to a $ClientURL variable.
So I have something like the following:

Set includes
Set variables (one of which is $ClientURL = ("www.example.com").
Start loop
   Main script
      If $ClientURL = ("www.example.com") Then
          $ClientURL = ("www.a.com")
      If $ClientURL = ("www.a.com") Then
         $ClientURL = ("www.b.com")
      ElseIf $ClientURL = ("www.b.com") Then
         $ClientURL = ("www.c.com")
      ElseIf $ClientURL = ("www.c.com") Then
         $ClientURL = ("www.d.com")
      ElseIf $ClientURL = ("www.c.com") Then
         $ClientURL = ("www.example.com")
      Sleep until the script restarts the loop.
End loop

This only uses one main script and changes the variables needed to run in by the following value every time.
My problem is this...
Everything runs smoothly, but if a webserver takes too long to respond, the program will timeout.
This doesn't give a certain status, so it doesn't get logged by the script so it can move on to the next one.
It just freezes and crashes on it eventually.
Is there a way to add a certain timeout to a line?
Lets say something like this:

Func A ()
$oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1")
$oHTTP.Open("GET", $ClientURL, False)
$oHTTP.Send()
If the time it takes = >10 seconds
   Move on to the next line
Else
   Do nothing
EndFunc

I thought about making a variable that tracks the system time in seconds that has passed by and resets it at the beginning of every new function,
but I was hoping there'd be something more efficient...
Thanks in advance guys! :)

We have no idea what you're trying to achieve....

Is there a question in there? Because your title and description don't match up.

Yeah, sorry... Got posted even though I wasn't finished typing it yet.

Idk much about http requests, I just use inet and curl but I think you want this member of the http object

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa384061(v=vs.85).aspx

So it might look like

Func A()
    $oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1")
    $oHTTP.Open("GET", $ClientURL, False)
    $oHTTP.SetTimeouts(ResolveTimeout, ConnectTimeout, SendTimeout, ReceiveTimeout) ; Adjust your timeouts accordingly
    $oHTTP.Send()
    
    ; Idk what the status value is on a successful http request
    If ($oHTTP.Status <> ???) Then
        Move on to the next line
    Else
        Do nothing
    EndIf
EndFunc

Thanks!
This might just be what I'm looking for!

Added the line and still got the error, it just didn't return a status, so it grabbed the status from the previous line.
However, the errors stopped now... even with the timout taken out of the script...
Guess I looked for the reason of errors in the wrong place after all.
Time to check the event logger on the webserver in this case...

Thanks for the quick feedback!
It's definately a line I'll keep using in some scripts! :)

      edit: this is probably in the wrong place, can a moderator move it to wherever it belongs?
      ----------

      is there any way to completely disable TCPTimeout and make TCPRecv() wait indefinitely? maybe setting it to 0 or -1 or something? 
      the docs doesn't seem to mention any way to disable it

      - the underlying C code would set SO_RCVTIMEO to 0 , aka

      DWORD timeout=0;
      setsockopt(s, SOL_SOCKET, SO_RCVTIMEO, &timeout, sizeof(timeout));

      Hi all,
      I was wondering if you can help me with the function called; InetRead().
      My scripts are using this function a lot for several conditions and everything works fine!
      But sometimes when the server is a little bit buggy of simply not available my script is hanging.
      It takes about 90sec before this function returns a Timeout, when i adjust the parameter it still is hanging about 90sec.
      The following script is a example where the script is hanging for aprox. 90sec;
      ; Set Timeout to 2sec AutoItSetOption ("TCPTimeout", 2000) ; Read Website InetRead("http://www.geenverbinding.nl/",1) ; Show Msgbox before Ending Script. Msgbox(64,"","Finished")  
      The following script is a example where the script show the Msgbox pretty fast;

       
      ; Set Timeout to 2sec AutoItSetOption ("TCPTimeout", 2000) ; Read Website InetRead("http://www.google.nl/",1) ; Show Msgbox before Ending Script. Msgbox(64,"","Finished")  
      My question now is, what am i doing wrong and/or is there a other way to prevent Hanging the script?
      Thanks all

      I have automated an install process by using the below code.
       
      Func _WinWaitActivate($title,$text,$timeout=0) WinWait($title,$text,$timeout) If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text) WinWaitActive($title,$text,$timeout) EndFunc $win1 = "Text 1" $win2 = "Text 2" _WinWaitActivate($win1,"WARNING: This progra") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("{SPACE}") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"I DISAGREE and &do n") Send("{UP}n") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"Customer Information") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("{TAB}{TAB}n") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"Click Next to instal") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("n") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"This feature require") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("{TAB}n") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"Ready to Install the") Send("{ALTDOWN}i{ALTUP}");Send("i") _WinWaitActivate($win1,"The InstallShield Wi") Send("{ALTDOWN}f{ALTUP}");Send("f") _WinWaitActivate($win2,"You must restart you") Send("{ALTDOWN}n{ALTUP}");Send("n") Now if any new screen comes in the middle of installation, like some VC++ installation error or like that.
      The AutoIT is waiting in the background.
      Is there any way to skip the new screens with just "enter" and continue the installation??

      Hi All, 
      I went searching for something to speed up checking for files on the network (UNC Paths)
      Most examples were rather complicated but someones multi-threaded solution gave me an idea.
      Hope it is useful to someone.
      Seems to work well so far. 
       
      Func _FileExistsTimeout($sPath, $iTimeout = 1000) Local $hTimer = TimerInit() ; Begin the timer and store the handle in a variable. Local $iPID = Run(@AutoItExe & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteLine "ConsoleWriteError(FileExists(""' & $sPath & '""))"', @ScriptDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD) Local $sOutput = "" Local $iDiff = 0 While $iDiff < $iTimeout $iDiff = TimerDiff($hTimer) $sOutput &= StderrRead($iPID) If @error Then ; Exit the loop if the process closes or StderrRead returns an error. ExitLoop EndIf WEnd ProcessClose($iPID) Switch StringStripWS($sOutput, 8) Case 1 Return True Case Else Return False EndSwitch EndFunc ;==>_FileExistsTimeout

      Edit 2: Complete rewrite of the function, simplified version using a single function and without use of GUICtrlSetOnEvent or AutoItSetOption. Correct centering of message.
      Edit 1: Updated function to correct possible misbehaving AutoItSetOption.
      MsgBox with Visual CountDown
      Self-explanatory I guess...
