If you are proxying long-lived requests that employ streaming calls such as websockets or gRPC, set this to either a maximum value there may be no data exchange over a connection (recommended), or set it to unlimited (
idle_timeout is specified, and
timeout is not explicitly set, then
timeout would be unlimited (
0s). You still may specify maximum lifetime of the connection using
timeout value (i.e. to 1 day).
