timed out waiting for input: auto-logout

The connections to Linux server got disconnected with message “timed out waiting for input: auto-logout”.

It is an unhappy thing when you are run some kind of long running scripts or database SQLs.

The issue is coming from the variable ‘TMOUT’ in Linux environment.

$  cat /etc/profile.d/autologout.sh
export TMOUT=36000

$ grep TMOUT /etc/profile

$ echo $SHELL

$ cat /etc/bashrc|grep  TMOUT

If you want to disable timeout, then reset variable TMOUT=0

$ export TMOUT=0
