Sets the interval between the time you type a request and the time CNS rejects the request because a program did not respond to the input.
CNSSET TIMEOUT n
- Time interval, in seconds, between receipt of input and receipt of error message, if a utility is not reading input.
- Valid intervals range from 1 to 60 seconds.
- The default is 5 seconds.
The key-in timeout signals that a utility is not reading any input.
Values less than 5 seconds can cause input to be lost too quickly. Values greater than 5 seconds could cause a delay in delivery of error messages.
To check the current setting, issue the CNSGET command. For more information, see CNSGET.
