503. That’s an error. There was an error. Please try again later. That’s all we know


I'm using google mymaps. I have about 10 layers which represent about 12000 features.

Google says it can handle 10 layers and about 20000 features...

Sometimes the map is displaying or I'm getting this error:

503. That’s an error.
There was an error. Please try again later. That’s all we know.

Also, the navigation is very slow on Google Chrome compare to Internet explorer.

Anyways to fix this bug and issues?


Solution

  • 503 means server error on Googles side.

    10.5.4 503 Service Unavailable The server is currently unable to handle the request due to a temporary overloading or maintenance of the server. The implication is that this is a temporary condition which will be alleviated after some delay. If known, the length of the delay MAY be indicated in a Retry-After header. If no Retry-After is given, the client SHOULD handle the response as it would for a 500 response.

    it could be your input is too difficult for the server to perform, and it crashes. You could try to reduce the complexity of your requests, or perhaps reduce the frequency of which you send the server a request.
