Timeout values specific to Unicenter CA-Teleview (CA-Teleview) are defined in the CA-Teleview Administrator Guide (reference TIMEOUT keyword in the index) and can be defined as follows:

  • CA-Teleview library VOPTIONS, member TIMEOUT, is delivered with system wide default timeout values that can be customized.
    The format of the TIMEOUT record is documented below. The values of each timeout option should be coded as eight hexadecimal numbers. Do not leave any of the columns blank. For example, to change a 15 second timeout value to 20 seconds, code
    000007D0 instead of 000005DC

  • Timeouts can be established at the terminal level, the profile-application level, and the userid level by accessing the respective definition (terminal/profile/userid) and setting the timeout minutes 'To' value and, optionally, an application timeout minutes 'Ato' value for all applications.
  • Timeouts can be established at the individual application level via accessing the application definition and setting the 'To' timeout minutes value.
  • You can implement a TIMEOUT exit for an application or a terminal. ATX is the application exit and TTX is the terminal exit.
