Changing the default passivation time-out settings

Updated on May 11, 2022

Passivation time-out is required for high availability environments and is enabled by default. The length of time that pages, threads, or requestors are idle before they are passivated is defined by default. To change passivation times, add the passivation settings to the dynamic system settings and then enter the preferred values.

Changing passivation time-out values

The following Pega-Engine ruleset prconfig settings define the values for passivation time-outs, in seconds. To increase or decrease the passivation time-out period, change the value.

  • timeout/page – The number of seconds that pages are idle before passivation occurs. The default value is 900 seconds, or 15 minutes.
  • timeout/thread – The number seconds that threads are idle before passivation occurs. The default value is 1800 seconds, or 30 minutes.
  • timeout/browser – The number of seconds that requestors are idle before passivation occurs. The default value is 3,600 seconds, or 60 minutes.
