Default value (if omitted):5 minutes

 

Relevance conditions:---

Timeout (connection timeout) parameter sets the timeout (in minutes) for the data connections between the VSP and the DS. If no data is transmitted across the data connection (TCP or UDP) for a specified number of minutes the VSP aborts the connection.

 

Setting connection timeout parameter to 0 disables the feature and connection never times out. If omitted, this parameter defaults to 5 minutes.

 

Notice, that this feature will work even when the connection mode is set to "immediately". When the timeout comes the VSP closes the connection first and immediately reopens it (timeout counter is reloaded). This provides additional reliability since hanged connections are automatically "repaired".

 

Connection timeout parameter works like the Connection Timeout (CT) setting of the DS and the connection timeout option of the VSP for Windows.
