Specifies the default total retransmission timeout value for a TCP connection. For a given TCP connection, if TCP has been retransmitting for tcp_ip_abort_interval period of time and it has not received any acknowledgment from the other endpoint during this period, TCP closes this connection.
For TCP retransmission timeout (RTO) calculation, refer to RFC 1122, 4.2.3. See also tcp_rexmit_interval_max.
500 milliseconds to 1193 hours
Do not change this value. See tcp_rexmit_interval_max for exceptions.
