Retry Policy

Advanced options for instructing Oura how to deal with failed attempts in certain sinks.

Supported Sinks


To modify the default behaviour used by the sink, a section named [sink.retry_policy] needs to be added in the daemon.toml file.

max_retries = 30
backoff_unit =  5000
backoff_factor = 2
max_backoff = 100000
  • max_retries: the max number of retries before failing the whole pipeline. Default value is 20
  • backoff_unit: the delay expressed in milliseconds between each retry. Default value is 5000.
  • backoff_factor: the amount to increase the backoff delay after each attempt. Default value is 2.
  • max_backoff: the longest possible delay in milliseconds. Default value is 100000
