ASP timeout issue

P: n/a
I am having a time out issue when multiple users are accessing the server.
This time out does not happen all of the time. My understanding is that the
time out value is actually set in two places. I believe one is in the asp
pages for the session itself, and the other is more of a system timeout
settting in IIS. Would one of these supercede the other if the two are
different?
I have already looked at the time out setting in IIS, and it is set to 900
seconds. However, the actual timeout is happening in much less than 900
seconds, so either the setting on the asp page is controlling this, or the
"900" is not really seconds but some other measure.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Ellie

Is it a script timeout? A database connection timeout? A database query
timeout? A session timeout? A browser timeout?

Show the actual error message. If it is a database timeout then also
indicate the DBMS you are using.

I'm trying to get the answer to all of your questions. In the meantime, do
you know if the IIS setting for a timeout is in seconds, msecs or minutes?

The session timeout is in minutes. The script timeout is in seconds.

Ok, thanks. But what about the IIS itself? Is there a timeout involved there
also for ASP sessions?

The duration of an ASP session is the "session timeout" (in minutes) and it
can be set in the IIS manager (and programmaticaly).
The "script timeout" is the amount of time a page runs (server side of
course) before it is stopped (such as caught in a loop or too much data
processed).

It would be easier to give the exact message so that we can understand which
timeout you are talking about...

Thanks. You're right about the error message but even after years of working
with programs, my users still don't write them down!!!

As a side note you could trap most if not all server side error messages.
See http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;224070

For example, it could mail you all details about the error (error details
but also request.form, session variables and so on)

Here is the exact error message. Seems pretty obvious but if you have
anything to add, let me know.

Thanks:
Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0113'

Script timed out

/deptStats.asp

The maximum amount of time for a script to execute was exceeded. You
can change this limit by specifying a new value for the property
Server.ScriptTimeout or by changing the value in the IIS administration
tools.

The only thing I can add is that you should not willy-nilly increase the
script timeout to a higher value. You should concentrate on discovering why
the page is taking so long to run. This will require some debugging to
determine the precise cause of the timeout.
