For GEP 10.2.2, proxy can be configured by editing the file <GEP_Installation>\etc\com.ges.httpclient.cfg, e.g.
#Set value to <host>:<port>
You will need to stop and restart GeoEvent Processor service in Windows Service Manager for the setting to become effective. Please note this proxy is for the HTTP-based transport for the entire GEP.
Thanks, we decided to build our own proxy and point the GEP input to that.
However, looking in the above directory I can find "com.ges.httpclient.cfg". I was hoping to increase the time-out value for http request and imagine this would be the place to do so - is this a correct assumption?
With the "com.ges.httpclient.cfg" file is this an add-in or have we done something wrong with the install?
Are you using GeoEvent 10.2.2? In prior versions, that config file was not there.
Unfortunately, timeouts aren't modifiable in this config file. All of our Http Connections have a timeout of 30 seconds as we try to stay as close to real-time as possible.
