Passivation time-out settings

Suggest edit
Updated on April 5, 2022

Passivation is used to improve system performance by removing pages from the clipboard that have not been accessed by a requestor for a specified period of time.

You can configure the time-out periods with the prconfig.xml or dynamic system settings timeout/page, timeout/thread, and timeout/browser. These settings signify numbers of seconds.

The initialization/PersistRequestor prconfig setting or dynamic system setting controls whether time-out passivation occurs. If the setting is not defined or equals OnTimeout, time-out passivation occurs. Time-out passivation is required for high availability environments. To prevent time-out passivation, set this to Never.
