Subject send body timed out
Date Fri, 18 Jan 2002 13:43:39 GMT
Hello, gurus,

    I have a Perl application running on apache server on a unix box. My
application executes 12 SQL sentences and brings the result to screen
after each SQL sentence finished (yes, I do set up the output flush
variable $| to 1.). Most of my SQL sentences spend 5 - 10 minutes in the
solid database, but there is one big one, which takes about 30 minutes
to execute. When I tried to run the application via Netscape, the
application stopped just before completion of execution of the biggest
SQL sentence. I know this from the output the application gave on the
screen. After I checked the apache's log file, I found a 'send body
timed out' error. Does this mean that I should increase the value of
Timeout in the httpd.conf file. The current value is 300 seconds before
receives and sends time out. If this is the case, I think I need to set
the value as 2 hours, i.e. 7200 seconds. Is this value too high? I
failed to find any maximum value for the FAQ of apache and the web.

Your help is appreciated.
