Error description

  • The API Connect Gateway Service operates off an internal work
    queue that contains jobs for processing webhooks received from
    the API Manager.  Jobs that take more than a certain amount of
    time are terminated.
    If you have a sufficiently large Catalog definition, the size
    of the snapshot payload being sent by API Manager, may
    exceeding the maximum time, triggering a 911 request from the
    gateway service to API Manager to resend the snapshot, and then
    in turn that request would also time out.  So the gateway would
    never be able to sync with API Manager with respect to the
    catalog.
    The fix adjusts the algorithm to be more tolerant of longer
    running webhook processing jobs.
