Bugs notwithstanding, Polygraph server reports inactivity timeout when
it does not receive any requests and cannot send any responses. You can
control the timeout duration using the --idle_tout command line option.
The default is 5 minutes.

It is possible that the server was receiving requests but then stopped
because the network, the device under test, or the drones are
overloaded. It is also possible that the client is misconfigured to send
too few requests after the test starts.

Please post your workload and verbose console logs if you still need
help with this.

Thank you,
