    Session Timeout, Document Timeout and Inactive Time

    Yaniv Feldman

      Hi Experts

       

      I have a requirement for the following scenario:

      The Publisher reloads a document every 5 minutes and distributes it the QV Server.

      The document is always opened (open in server) on a client workstation (kind of a big KPI monitor near the production line).

      No navigation is made with the document, it just stays open and being refreshed every 5 minutes in the client workstation.

      However, the session gets disconnected from the server after 120 minutes.

       

      What is the meaning of the following parameters in the QVS setup:

      Maximum Inactive Session Time

      Maximum Total Session Time

      Possible Session Timeout

      Document Timeout

       

      What are the main differences between Session Time out and Document Timeout and Inactive Session Time?

       

      Is QVS designed for this kind of functionality? (I don't want this document to consume all the server memory resources...)

       

      Thanks

      Yaniv

          Hi Yaniv,

           

          A good explanation is in the help of the QMC, upper right corner. Shortcut: http://localhost:4780/QMCHelp/default_Left.htm#CSHID=QMC_System_Setup_QlikViewServers_Performance.htm|StartTopic=Content…

          . Yes, it can be done. The QVS should say within the working set limits, so it should be fine. Usually you can set those values to 0 and it should be fine. There are also some more timeouts, in the QVWS and if you are using IIS, it has some too.

           

          QVS, DSC and QVWS additional timeouts (apart from the ones you mentioned):

          QVS

              Document Timeout    Found at: C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer\settings.ini    Default value: 3600(seconds)    

                              

          DSC

              Cache expiration    Found at: QEMC > System> Setup > DSC@ > Active Directory > General > Edit icon    Default value: 60(minutes)    

               Service timeout     Found at: QEMC > System> Setup > DSC@ > Active Directory > General > Edit icon    Default value: 30(seconds)    

                              

          Webserver              

               QVS Timeout    Found at: C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\WebServer\config.xml    Default value: 120(seconds), Time webserver will wait on response from QVS

               Sessioncookietimeout    Found at: C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\WebServer\config.xml    Default value: 30(minutes)

            Hi Yaniv,

             

            Also, if you are using IIS there are timeouts in there also.
