Setting Connection Timeout Value for opensearch-py

Hi, looking for a way to set a fail-fast timeout on connections to OpenSearch. I’ve tried setting timeout=5 from the client instantiation, but i’m still seeing 10 second exceptions, as set in

from opensearchpy import OpenSearch

    opensearch_client = OpenSearch(
        timeout = 5

It’s been two weeks with no input , so what i’ve done is a quick requests connection test before opening opensearch to see about basic reachability. In this way i can fast-fail for not reachable, and still maintain a long timeout for search queries that take longer.
