STIMEOUT seconds — Legacy thread timeout seconds

STIMEOUT is a parameter on JANUS DEFINE, which defines and sets characteristics of a Janus port.

This parameter sets the number of seconds of inactivity after which a Janus Web Legacy Support session is terminated. Since it is quite easy for an end-user to start a 3270 session in a browser and forget about it, a session timeout is essential to prevent all available sdaemon threads from being eaten up by forgotten 3270 sessions. The default STIMEOUT setting for a port is 900 (seconds) or 15 minutes. The STIMEOUT parameter can be overridden by an STIMEOUT parameter specified on a JANUS WEB SCREEN command or by a $Web_Screen function call.

Valid only for WEBSERV ports.
