Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide

Timer expired


The timer set for a STREAMS ioctl call has expired. The cause of this error is device specific and could indicate either a hardware or software failure, or perhaps a time-out value that is too short for the specific operation. The status of the ioctl(2) operation is indeterminate. This is also returned in the case of _lwp_cond_timedwait(2) or cond_timedwait(3THR).

Technical Notes

The symbolic name for this error is ETIME, errno=62.
