Downloading files >3Gb from S3 fails with "SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out"

AWS Java SDK 1.9.3

When downloading many large files (~3Gb) from AWS S3 in Java server app I get SocketTimeoutException from time to time as following:

Caused by: com.amazonaws.AmazonClientException: Unable to store object contents to disk: Read timed out

I download files from S3 using 4 threads, all threads use the same TransferManager instance. As mantioned before, I'm using AWS SDK 1.9.3 and get such exceptions only from time to time. Code is the following:

...
Download d = transferManager.download(currentBucket, remoteFileName, new File(tmpName));
d.waitForCompletion();
...


Is it an issue of SDK? Maybe of v1.9.3?

And is there any solution except increasing
socketTimeout
for
ClientConfiguration
?

Answer

Here is how I can do in AWS SDK 1.9.3:

ClientConfiguration config = new ClientConfiguration(); 
config.setConnectionTimeout(connectionTimeout);
config.setSocketTimeout(readTimeout); 
AmazonS3 s3 = new AmazonS3Client(credentials, config);
