Timeouts

The other attack vector is to make a query which takes a really long time to execute. There are broadly two types of timeouts:

Database timeout: In case a database connection or a query takes a long time to respond, Hasura can return a timeout error. There's a statement_timeout setting in Postgres to abort any statement execution if it's taking longer than specified milliseconds. This is just a configuration at the database layer (Postgres in this case).

HTTP timeout: If you are using Actions/Remote Schemas/Events, you would have configured http endpoints for respective requests. You can configure a timeout setting as well to abort the query execution. Http endpoints make different queries in their underlying logic and configuring a timeout is recommended to abort connections and respond quickly back to the client.
