503 / Service Unavailable

“由于临时的服务器维护或者过载,服务器当前无法处理请求。这个状况是临时的,并且将在一段时间以后恢复。如果能够预计延迟时间,那么响应中可以包含一个Retry-After头用以标明这个延迟时间。如果没有给出这个Retry-After信息,那么客户端应当以处理500响应的方式处理它。“ — wikipedia

“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.
Note: The existence of the 503 status code does not imply that a server must use it when becoming overloaded. Some servers may wish to simply refuse the connection.“ — ietf
