Usage Notes: 

1. The HPSS site administrator may disable the ability to use an infinite idle timeout value. 

2. In general, use of an infinite timeout is discouraged, as it ties up system resources on both the client and server machines. 

Example: 

1. Display current idle timeout setting:

    % idletime

    Idle timeout setting is 1800 seconds

  (response for default setting) 

2. Set idle timeout to one hour (3600 seconds) 

    idle 3600

    Idle timeout setting is 3600 seconds

3. Set unlimited timeout 

    idle -1

    Idle timeout setting is unlimited (no idle timeout)
