GUI communication failure (0) on node fail


Mar 4, 2023
I have a 3 node cluster setup, one master and two nodes, one of my nodes is down currently, but the cluster page in the GUI on the remaining two now just times out with communication failure (0)

Is that expected behaviour, or should the page load OK showing the failed node as 'failed'?
this depends on how the api call fails exactly, if the server tries to reach the node but runs into a 30 second timeout it's possible to see the symptoms you describe
if the node is offline for sometime, it should fail faster and display a better error/info

i did work on improving that, but did not finish that yet
if you want you can open a bug here: to track that

Hi Dominik, thanks you for the reply, FYI re amount of time, its been around 12 ish hours now its been down and still just timing out........
as i said that depends on which part exactly fails and how the network is setup. we will improve on that but no timeframe yet
