WEBLOGHOLD xxxx — Seconds to save login for web re-use

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

This parameter indicates that number of seconds that a "real" login should be saved for re-use on a web connection. A "real" login is either a login to a userid other than the WEBUSER userid or a login to the WEBUSER userid when the WEBPUBLOG parameter is set for a port.

With ordinary web processing, every request for a page or image on a page is a separate connection. This means that if a set of URLs is logon protected, each protected image requires a logon. WEBLOGHOLD provides a way of reducing the number of logons and hence the overhead associated with these logons. In addition, by keeping web users logged on for some period after a request, monitoring and auditing is facilitated for these users. For more discussion of the logon caching feature, see the Janus Web Server Reference Manual.

The default for WEBLOGHOLD is 0, which means that logon caching is not used for the port.

WEBLH is a synonym for WEBLOGHOLD.

Valid only for WEBSERV ports.
