More Information About Tcp Delay Check

The requested TCP address did not respond within the specified threshold.

When the TCP address is checked by our servers, we wait the specified threshold for a response. If our servers do not receive a response before the threshold time, this error is triggered.

Additional Information

TCP addresses can specify a threshold, which allows the request to timeout earlier than the default 15 seconds. With this failure, you might also recieve a TCP Connect failure.

TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a specific way to transmit and format data over a network between two IP addresses, hence TCP/IP. Most web traffic uses the TCP protocol, including email and other protocols, such as HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, SSH,and FTP.

If a TCP hostname is requested (e.g. example.com), the request goes out to a DNS server and gets converted into an IP address.

Troubleshooting

  • Double check the TCP address, including the port.
  • Double check the threshold that was set.
  • If using a hostname, try running a DNS Lookup on your domain to see if there are any issues with your DNS servers.
