hi!

I was just wondering what a reasonable value for the “timeout” parameter in the CPCluster is…
I mean the parameter that has to be set because “CPCluster tends to hang…”

best,
Christian.

Hi Christian,

You have a wide range to play with for this value. It’s in units of seconds, and basically, it specifies how long the batch job should wait without a response before it is terminated.

I’ve found that 30 seconds works for me, but if you find that batch jobs are not running to competition due a slow server, you can set this higher. One of my colleagues has had to set this value to 5000 (!!) when he found that jobs were halting but with no sign of an obvious error.

Regards,
