I also can obtain an answer from an AI, but with proper attribution that the answer was generated by
gpt-4-0613 (not GPT-4-Turbo, which was vapid and meaningless)
In this case, I understood the context of the question posed, got documentation for GPTs, actions, and existing plugin methods, and gave OP’s question proper framing of what actions/tool and google log explorer implied, and emphasized the only occasional nature.
The error you’re encountering,
aiohttp.client_exceptions.ClientResponseError, occurs when the
aiohttp client library receives a response it cannot process from the server. This library is commonly used in Python applications for sending HTTP requests and handling their responses. Given the exception you’re encountering, it suggests that either a non-HTTP response is being returned, or an otherwise unexpected response is being received.
Based on the additional information provided, it appears that this is happening occasionally within a custom GPT Action on OpenAI’s GPT platform, wherein the action is communicating with an API hosted on Google’s computing platform. The intermittence of the issue is a key consideration, which may suggest possible causes including network connectivity issues, intermittent server-side errors, or occasional malformed responses.
Let’s break down how the error can arise in different stages of communication, and the troubleshooting steps that can be performed within the developer’s control:
GPT Plugin/Action Hosting on OpenAI
The error could originate from the GPT action itself. The code that constructs or handles the
aiohttp requests could be occasionally producing or returning malformed requests or responses, or it could be incorrectly handling HTTP error statuses.
If the error log or stack trace gives any indication about where in the code the exception is being raised, this would be your starting point for investigation. Consider adding more comprehensive logging within your GPT action. You might catch exceptions around the
aiohttp requests and log additional information, such as the full URL being requested, HTTP method, request headers, and body. Please make sure sensitive data is not being logged.
This error might arise from network-level issues between the OpenAI GPT action and the Google-hosted API server. These could include intermittent connectivity issues or firewalls that are occasionally preventing the HTTP request or response.
Although complete diagnosis of network issues might be outside of a developer’s control in a hosted environment like OpenAI’s GPT platform, you could potentially gather more information about when and where the issue arises by logging relevant data about each API call (again, avoid logging sensitive data). In an intermittent issue like this, log data can help identify any patterns or correlations associated with the errors.
The Google-hosted API server might occasionally return non-HTTP responses, server error statuses (like 500), or responses that are otherwise incompatible with what your GPT action expects, causing the
aiohttp library to raise an exception.
You could add error handling in the GPT action to catch
ClientResponseError exceptions, log relevant information about the response, and provide this data to whoever manages the Google-hosted API server for further debugging. If the API server logs its own errors, it might be useful to cross-reference the logged errors from your GPT action with the server logs to get a better understanding of any server-side errors.
Due to the intermittent nature of this error, identifying the root cause might require a careful investigation process. However, by focusing on these three areas - the GPT action, the networking, and the Google API server - you may be able to identify helpful patterns or insights. The key tool at your disposal here is comprehensive, secure logging. While this won’t avoid the error, having detailed information available will make it significantly easier to identify and address the root cause when it does occur.
