Introduce a solution for limiting query access (timeouts) to the SPARQL query service for non-Wikimedia installations
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Out of the box Wikidata Query Service allows all queries to run without timing out. This might lead to the Query service instance becoming stuck by long-running queries.

As a Wikibase instance maintainer, I want to be able to introducing timeout policy for my SPARQL query service, so I could prevent it from being abused.

Notes:

Acceptance criteria:

  • Solution for defining timeouts for the SPARQL query service has been documented in the instructions for the users of the tarball packages
  • SPARQL query service provided in the official container image has the timeout solution provided
