Table 2. Metadata options use to control how outbound connections are used
The default socket timeout in milliseconds. The socket timeout defines the length of time the proxy server waits for data after successfully establishing a connection with the target server. The default value is 30,000 milliseconds (30 seconds). A timeout value of zero is interpreted as an infinite timeout.
The number of retries to be performed if the proxy could not establish a connection with the target server. The default value is two retries.
The number of HTTP connections the proxy can open to connect to a specific host. The default value is 5 connections per host.
The maximum number of HTTP connections that the proxy can open to connect to arbitrary target hosts. The default value is 100 connections.
If this parameter is set to true, the proxy connects to any HTTPS URL allowed by the proxy, regardless of whether or not it trusts the specified host. The default and recommended setting is false.
