When you perform a
HttpClient.Timeout is placed on the
CancellationTokenSource. This means this timeout is for the entire async operation.
On the other hand,
WebRequestHandler.ReadWriteTimeout is copied to the
HttpWebRequest where it is set on the request stream both
WriteTimeout. So this is more a timeout at the stream level, which is ultimately a socket level timeout.
If you set both, then if the operation takes more than
HttpClient.Timeout in total it will timeout, and if a read or write from the stream takes longer than
WebRequestHandler.ReadWriteTimeout it will also timeout. Though I am not sure if there is a difference in the timeout exceptions raised.
