timeout conn

Unanswered Question

what would the be side of effects of setting 'timeout conn' to 5hrs? beside the possibly of running out of connection resources. anything security related?

i have a client that as a web base report that takes 5 hours to run. things where fine when the server was in-house but its now in a colo.

I have this problem too.

I've had situations where I've had to increase the timeout conn setting to 4hrs or even 8hrs to keep telnet sessions from being dropped during the day.

The main issue is the possibility of something happening that opens a ton of sessions without correctly closing them. That could lead to processor/memory usage, and eventual crash.... Although I've never seen it.
