What version of DocAve are you running? We had timeout errors due to running older code. DocAve uses Sqlite to store the index file. And the Sqlite is configured in a UNC path even if it is local to the server. That path is easily affected by response time. Sometimes an exception will be thrown when accessing the Sqlite located in a UNC path. To avoid this the added new logic to convert the UNC path to a local path. After upgrading to TSM for SP same as DOCAVE our problems went away.
