Joy i believe that is a function of the application that is doing the connecting...for example SSMS will wait forever, whereas any application that is creating an instnace of a SQLConnection gets a default timeout of 30 seconds; there is a parameter ont he SQLCommand to change the timeout.

Since the application decides how long it will wait for SQL to respond, I don't think you'll find a server side setting for it.


help us help you! If you post a question, make sure you include a CREATE TABLE... statement and INSERT INTO... statement into that table to give the volunteers here representative data. with your description of the problem, we can provide a tested, verifiable solution to your question! asking the question the right way gets you a tested answer the fastest way possible!

From the SQL Server side, there is no "Session timeout" setting. If you need to do it from the server side, the proc described here: is a good way to clean up idle sessions that remain connected.

2008 does offer the query governor as a mechanism for preventing long-running queries. You can also set a a remote server connection timeout setting for the server, however, this is specific to outgoing connections from the server, not queries coming in.

Other than that, connections, as stated above, and timeouts are maintained by the client.
