• Version 4.0 and earlier: mastertimeout variable not available.
  • Version 5.0.1 and later: mastertimeout variable available.

Integer, modifiable

The mastertimeout variable specifies the amount of idle time, in seconds, between pbmasterd and pblocald. If the job is idle for the specified number of seconds, then it is terminated. mastertimeout is similar to runtimeout, from the pbmasterd point of view, and is useful only when there is no log server.

The mastertimeout variable is not honored in local mode.

mastertimeout = number;
  • number: Enable idle checking.
  • 0: Disable idle checking. This value is the default.
runtimeout = 3600;
