Is there a way to disable circuit breaking?¶
Envoy comes with certain defaults for each kind of circuit breaking. Currently, there isn’t a switch to turn circuit breaking off completely; however, you could achieve a similar behavior by setting these thresholds very high, for example, to std::numeric_limits<uint32_t>::max().
Following is a sample configuration that tries to effectively disable all kinds of circuit breaking by setting the thresholds to a value of 1000000000.
circuit_breakers: thresholds: priority: HIGH max_connections: 1000000000 max_pending_requests: 1000000000 max_requests: 1000000000 max_retries: 1000000000
