tbh 3% doesn’t sound that bad considering how often my wifi has problems :sweat_smile:. We literally have a “days since last wifi down” counter in the office and it gets reset all the time lol.
We don’t have p99/99.9 today unfortunately, but our server 5XX errors happen to ~ 0.01% of requests in the past week, so even at 99.9% I’m pretty sure it would’ve returned by our server just fine.
We also have MAX request time. Looking at the past week (each datapoint here is 1 hour and represent the request that took the longest within that window, of tens of millions of requests), the max do exceeds the default timeout of 3s quite often, but stays under 5s most of the time. If you want to make sure as many of your users are getting the correct value, you can try setting the timeout to be 5000 or something instead.
