Create a Timeout Config to LoadBalancers
I am very frustrated with the operation of the LoadBalancer. I have web services that lead to 2 minutes to answer a call and load balancer timeout is only 30 seconds and can not be changed. This behavior of the load balancer should only redirect calls to the servers, does not reproduce the actual operation of the server timeout is configurable. I put my clients to use loadbalance and started to have problems. At least this limitation had to be explicit in the description of the service so I would avoid spending so much time trying to identify the problem.
The suggestion of a support is that I create my own load balancer not what I believe to be the best answer.
We are pleased to announce that this timeout option has just been released in our API for the Cloud Load Balancers prouduct. We are working to complete this in the mycloud.rackspace control panel. Please reference docs.rackspace.com for the latest API documentation on Cloud Load Balancers. Thanks for your patience as we wrap this up!

Looking at the API docs it looks like there is an upper limit of 2 minutes for a timeout....is there a way we can make this higher?

I assume the control panel option will also be available for Load Balancers associated with a Cloud Server? If not, please add that to the requirements :-)
Can I setup unlimited timeouts now? Where can I read the documentation?
Great news! Any ETA for the control panel?

awesome! can this be utilized at all in Cloud Sites?

Yes it kills all main CMS usage, wordpress, drupal...
Cloudsites loses one of the last good point it still have...

Much agreed, the 30 second timeout kills an otherwise great product.
No solution, only a second I'm afraid. I am having a similar issue, an (admittedly slow) page times out rather than waiting. This makes previously slow operations unusable. Not good.
I moved to the balancer service from my own balancer (heartbeat / haproxy) to reduce work, not increase it.
