This parameter, which must have a numeric value between 0 and 43200, sets the default timeout value for a session, if one is not specified in the $Session_Create call. The default value for SESDEFTO of 900 indicates a default timeout of 15 minutes. If a session is not re-opened within the timeout value of the $Session_Create, it is considered timed-out and liable to deletion under control of the SESOPT parameter flags. The SESDEFTO setting can be overridden in many of the $Session functions.
An SESDEFTO setting greater than the SESMAXTO parameter value means that the SESDEFTO parameter is effectively the value of the SESMAXTO parameter. Also, since resetting SESMAXTO ensures that all sessions have a timeout value no greater than the new value of SESMAXTO, be aware that a SESMAXTO reset to a lower value might result in immediate timeout of some sessions.
