EDITOR_TIMEOUT
Specifies whether ZDT/Db2 editor sessions are subject to an inactivity time-out, and the length of time that must elapse before the inactivity time-out is triggered.

Specify 0 to disable the inactivity time-out. This is the default.

Specify a non-zero value to enable the inactivity timer. n is integer, n > 0. The value specified is interpreted as HHMMSS. Here are some examples:

n=30        specifies an inactivity time-out interval of 30 seconds
n=100       specifies an inactivity time-out interval of 1 minute
n=10000     specifies an inactivity time-out interval of 1 hour
n=718191    specifies an inactivity time-out interval
                 of 71 hours, 81 minutes and 91 seconds

The inactivity time-out applies to the locally connected Db2® system. For example, suppose the HFM2POPT has these entries:

HFM2SSDM    SSID=DSNA,
            EDITOR_TIMEOUT=0
HFM2SSDM    SSID=DSNB,
            EDITOR_TIMEOUT=45

An ZDT/Db2 user connected locally to DSNA is not subject to the editor inactivity time-out. If the ZDT/Db2 user specifies a location value to access a Db2 object at DSNB, the resulting editor session IS NOT subject to the inactivity time-out.

An ZDT/Db2 used connected locally to DSNB is subject to the editor inactivity time-out. If the ZDT/Db2 user specifies a location value to access a Db2 object at DSNA, the resulting editor session is subject to the inactivity time-out.
