Class TransactionInProgressException

The transaction with the given request token is already in progress.

Recommended Settings

This is a general recommendation for handling the TransactionInProgressException. These settings help ensure that the client retries will trigger completion of the ongoing TransactWriteItems request.

  • Set clientExecutionTimeout to a value that allows at least one retry to be processed after 5 seconds have elapsed since the first attempt for the TransactWriteItems operation.

  • Set socketTimeout to a value a little lower than the requestTimeout setting.

  • requestTimeout should be set based on the time taken for the individual retries of a single HTTP request for your use case, but setting it to 1 second or higher should work well to reduce chances of retries and TransactionInProgressException errors.

  • Use exponential backoff when retrying and tune backoff if needed.

Assuming default retry policy, example timeout settings based on the guidelines above are as follows:

Example timeline:

  • 0-1000 first attempt

  • 1000-1500 first sleep/delay (default retry policy uses 500 ms as base delay for 4xx errors)

  • 1500-2500 second attempt

  • 2500-3500 second sleep/delay (500 * 2, exponential backoff)

  • 3500-4500 third attempt

  • 4500-6500 third sleep/delay (500 * 2^2)

  • 6500-7500 fourth attempt (this can trigger inline recovery since 5 seconds have elapsed since the first attempt reached TC)
