I’d like to continue the conversation about the github topic (not sure whether I hit a bug):

Can't run some queries (they time out) #337 (



I tried supplying space and/or time parameters, and if I do, the dispatcher refuses to start


[root@...]# "${EXEC_DIR}"/bin/dispatcher --osm-base --meta --db-dir="${DB_DIR}" --time=86400

File_Error No such file or directory 2 /osm3s_v0.7.53_osm_base Dispatcher_Client::1



When I omit the time parameter, the dispatcher starts. I’m a bit puzzled.

I’m running overpass 0.7.53 (dd. Oct 11)


This is the time-out error receive:


[root@...]# osm3s_query

encoding remark: Please enter your query and terminate it with CTRL+D.


area(3600052411) -> .myArea;



) ;


out geom;

runtime error: open64: 0 Success /osm3s_v0.7.53_osm_base Dispatcher_Client::request_read_and_idx::timeout



Obviously, the timeout parameter supplied in the query is not used.



Thank you for helping me in the right direction.
