Failure detection - Temporal development feature

In Temporal, timeouts detect application failures. The system can then automatically mitigate these failures through retries. Both major application function primitives, Workflows and Activities, have dedicated timeout configurations and can be configured with a Retry Policy.

Follow one of our tutorials to Get started exploring timeouts and Retry Policies.

Or jump straight to a Temporal SDK feature guide.

For a deep dive into timeouts and Retry Policies visit the following Temporal Encyclopedia pages or enroll in one of our courses.
