Question:

Where are the TPX timeouts specified?

 

Answer:

TPX timeout values are established at the multiple levels. The lowest level where information is specified is used. Levels are listed here from high to low.

System Options Table (SMRT)

  • Timing Parameters Detail panel (TEN0104) --  All fields require values; if no values are specified, SMRT defaults are used. This panel contains User Timeout and Timeout Option fields, which allow for a two-stage timeout if the first level is a lock (L in Timeout Option field), and a Session Timeout field.

Application Characteristics Table (ACT)

  • Timeout Minutes field for an applid in the ACT (panel TEN0094) -- Specifying this field is optional.

Profile Maintenance

  • TPX User Options Detail (panel TEN0113) -- This panel contains four timeout-related fields and allows for a two-stage timeout (Stage 1 timeout, Stage 1 option, Stage 2 timeout, Stage 2 option).  Specifying these fields is optional; if specified, the values override the User Timeout and Timeout Option fields in the SMRT.
  • TPX Application Session Options - Profile Table Detail (panel TEN0114) -- Use the Timeout Minutes field. Specifying the field is optional; if specified, the value overrides the value in the ACT (if specified) and in the Session Timeout field in the SMRT.

TPX User Maintenance (Applicable only for user IDs defined in the TPX administration database)

  • TPX User Options -TPX Userid Maintenance Detail (panel TEN0123) -- This panel contains four timeout-related fields and allows for a two-stage timeout (Stage 1 timeout, Stage 1 option, Stage 2 timeout, Stage 2 option).  Specifying these fields is optional; if specified, the values override the User Options at the Profile level and the User Timeout and Timeout Option fields in the SMRT.
  • TPX Session Options - TPX User maintenance Detail for Session - Timeout Minutes field (panel TEN0124) -- Use the Timeout Minutes field. Specifying this field is optional; if specified, the value overrides the Application Session Options at the Profile level, the ACT, and the User Timeout field in the SMRT.

 

Additional Information:

When evaluating timeout information, you should also consider timeouts that can be defined in your applications, such as the TCP/IP INACTIVE parameter.
