Everytime there's a move in the map the OL3 requests a new image to the GeoServer ignoring the previous requests it has done which may lead to multiple pending image requests that are not going to be used.

Is there a way to abort these requests like in jQuery with .abort() for AJAX requests?


No, once you've made a GetMap request the WMS service will do its best to respond to it. You can't send an abort request.

  • Is there some way to provide a server side timeout to the requests? I seem to get loads queued up which then crash geoserver and tomcat and I have to reboot the whole PC :/ Aug 22 '18 at 9:46
  • @dougajmcdonald You can change request timeouts in your web server software, not sure about GeoServer directly.
