check error when server dose not response.(Сrashed)


Hi all ! Could anyone suggest please, how to check situation when apache crashed or another server for example ? How to handle such an error ? It dose not working …

return new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
  const data = JSON.stringify({u: user.username, p: user.password });, data).subscribe(data => {
    err => this.logError(err),
    () => console.log('Fetching complete for Server Metrics')
    err => {
      console.log("ERROR!: ", err);

console.log(“some error”);


You can add this function to handle timeout :, data).timeout(3003, new Error('Timeout')).subscribe(data => {


ArnaudDev, good day! Can we do something after timeout ? If for example we do not have response 20 second, show error message ?


I think so, you throw a specific error (timeout), in the error function you can maybe test it ?

  err => {
    if (err == 'timeout') {
      //show alert for timeout
    else {
      console.log("ERROR!: ", err);


be careful, you must import

import 'rxjs/add/operator/timeout';

or it won’t work :wink:


ArnaudDev, I will try now !


ArnaudDev, It is working, thanks a lot !


ArnaudDev, a little question… could be such kind mistake ?

Property 'timeout' does not exist on type 'Promise<any>'.


yes this function (timeout) is only available for observable not promise


ArnaudDev, I can not use timeout in such kind code ?

  Update(model_ext, include, data, iter, ext_id, page):Promise<any> {
    return new Promise((resolve, reject)=> {


Not exist other way check server crashed ?


Why are you explicitly instantiating a promise?


rapropos, to use function Update as promise with .then.


You already have a perfectly serviceable Observable that Angular’s Http service has given you, that has error-handling capabilities that apparently do what you want to do. Just work with that. Don’t create needless Promises. I know that you see this code idiom all over the forums and web searches, but it’s bad, for many reasons. One major one is particularly relevant here: it doesn’t propagate errors properly.


rapropos, thanks for answer, but I don’t understand what I need to do with my code to catch crashed server.
