After failure, check again in... NOT working for Errors

I notice that, when a test receives an error such as "Timeout: check failed to complete in time limit", the next test for that service happens based on the "After success, check again in..." parameter, rather than the "After failure, check again in...".

Am I missing something obvious, or should such "Errors" be treated as "Failures", triggering the appropriate "check again" action?

Re: After failure, check again in... NOT working for Errors

I'd have to hunt through the code to be sure, but timeouts are a bit different than other check errors, since Simon generates them as part of the scheduling process, as opposed to a server error or filter error. So I could imagine that they may not be treated the same. But I agree that they probably should be, if they aren't already.

Hi David, thanks for the prompt reply! What you say makes perfect sense. That said, I hope you can adjust the behavior so all errors/failures behave the same.

Thanks,

Jim
