Query Timeout

Attribute

QueryTimeout (QT)

Purpose

Specifies the number of seconds for the default query timeout for all statements that are created by a connection. To override the value set by this connection option for an individual statement, set a different value in the SQL_ATTR_QUERY_TIMEOUT statement attribute on the SQLSetStmtAttr() function.

Valid Values

-1 | 0 | x
where:
x
is a number of seconds.

Behavior

If set to -1, the query does not time out. The driver silently ignores the SQL_ATTR_QUERY_TIMEOUT attribute.
If set to 0, the query does not time out, but the driver responds to the SQL_ATTR_QUERY_TIMEOUT attribute.
If set to x, all queries time out after the specified number of seconds unless the application overrides this value by setting the SQL_ATTR_QUERY_TIMEOUT attribute.

Default

0
