In one of my application, I am sending request to server using volley provided by Google.

Problem : Timeout and error object is null on onErrorResponse(VolleyError error)

What i have tried so far :

1) First I got null error object so solved it by using below code :

 protected void deliverResponse(String response) {

 public void deliverError(VolleyError error) {
     DebugLog.e("deliverResponse", "getNetworkTimeMs : " + error.getNetworkTimeMs());

So far I have got that there is timeout happening when I got error object null.

2) Now Application is for Android and iOS and web but timeout happens only for Android.

Volley log for requests :

BasicNetwork.logSlowRequests: HTTP response for request

Edited Note :

  1. Web services develoed at server end is same for all three instances (Android , Web and iOS).

  2. Timeout happens when too many users makes requests to the server.

  3. I have set time out to 2 minutes though volley throws timeout in 30 seconds only sometimes.

  4. I have many answers to change server but as it is not possible so any other solution please.

I also like to add that if i can get more information about when timeout can be possible in volley ?

References I have been gone through :



Edited :

I have also set retry policy as below:

request.setRetryPolicy(new DefaultRetryPolicy(DefaultRetryPolicy.DEFAULT_TIMEOUT_MS * 48,
                0, DefaultRetryPolicy.DEFAULT_BACKOFF_MULT));

And also i do not want to retry if connection timeout.

How can i make efficient service call that can solve problem for timeout.

Any help will be appriciated.

As i have tried to get solution of this issue for about two months, I did not get any perfect solution. Though I analyze some facts as below :

  1. You can upgrade your server's performance
  2. I have tried making web-service request using HttpURLConnection but still getting same issue over there.

So I think this issue is not specific from volley, but you getting this issue then i would suggest to increase server performance with customizing below RetryPolicy:

int x=2;// retry count
request.setRetryPolicy(new DefaultRetryPolicy(DefaultRetryPolicy.DEFAULT_TIMEOUT_MS * 48,
                    x, DefaultRetryPolicy.DEFAULT_BACKOFF_MULT));

Hope it will help.

Suggestions are always welcome :)
