Failed to replay sequence app_name - timeout occured while navigating to url_address

Hi Team, I am facing above mentioned error while scheduling the scan. What could be the reason? Also, at times - I get error on the scan: "Errors: request timeout". Can anyone help? Best Regards MJ

The timeouts are usually indicative of some kind of connectivity issue with the site itself. One possible cause of this can be the number of requests being sent by Burp having an impact on the site itself.

Is the site that you are trying to scan available and fully functional when your scans are taking place (i.e. you can browse to the site successfully and the site behaves as expected whilst the scan is taking place)?

Have you tested the recorded sequence to make sure it works in isolation? If so, does it always fail during a scan or does this only happen periodically?
