Request failed or timed out - Polygon Mainnet


After working without issue for several hours I am receiving {‘code’:-32603, ‘message’:‘request failed or timed out’} on some function calls on Polygon Mainnet via infura.


It says no issue for Polygon Mainnet though.

In particular it appears I get a “request failed or timed out” error every time the w3.eth.estimate_gas function is called. But other requests seem to work fine.

Any idea why this might be happening?

Edit: Tried calling w3.eth.estimate_gas on Ethereum mainnet and had no issues. Definitely Polygon-specific.

hi @doodee thanks for flagging this ! It looks like you were posting faster that us announcing the incident Infura Status - Polygon API timeouts
It should be working well now.
