I am occasionally getting this message coming back from the exchange’s API: "“Timeout waiting for response from backend server. Send status unknown; execution status unknown.” At a superficial level, it’s meaning is obvious. But, what can I expect to happen subsequently? Can I assume my original message has been dropped? Or is it possible that my message will subsequently be acted upon by the exchange? For example, if I get this message in response to a message sending a new order, should I assume that order is open, or not?
Interestingly, this only happens in response to my messages seeking to create a new order, never in response to my requests to cancel an existing order.
After encountering this error, have you checked your orders? You can use this endpoint to verify if the order was executed and view its status.
No, but clearly I should. Thanks for your advice. I’ll follow it.
