Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP11 Administrator's Configuration File Reference


This directive specifies the maximum time in seconds that CGI processes are allowed to run before being killed.

The value of CGIExpirationTimeout should not be set too low— 300 seconds (5 minutes) would be a good value for most interactive CGIs; but if you have CGIs that are expected to take longer without misbehaving, then you should set it to the maximum duration you expect a CGI program to run normally. A value of 0 disables CGI expiration, which means that there is no time limit for CGI processes.

Note that on Windows platforms init-cgi time-out does not work, so you must use CGIExpirationTimeout.
