IFX_SMX_TIMEOUT_RETRY environment variable

Use the IFX_SMX_TIMEOUT_RETRY environment variable to specify the number of times that the high-availability replication (HDR), remote standalone (RS) or shared disk (SD) secondary server will repeat the wait cycle specified by the IFX_SMX_TIMEOUT environment variable if a response from the primary server has not been received.

1  setenv IFX_SMX_TIMEOUT_RETRY value
Any positive numeric value
default value
For example, to indicate that the amount of time specified in the IFX_SMX_TIMEOUT configuration parameter should be repeated up to 20 times if a response from the primary server has not been received, specify:

If the secondary server does not receive any message after the number of seconds specified in the IFX_SMX_TIMEOUT environment variable and after the number of cycles specified in the IFX_SMX_TIMEOUT_RETRY environment variable have completed, the secondary server will print the error message in the online.log and close the SMX connection. If an SMX timeout message is in the online.log, you might need to increase the IFX_SMX_TIMEOUT value, the IFX_SMX_TIMEOUT_RETRY value, or both of these values and restart secondary node.

This environment variable applies only to secondary servers. If you set this environment variable on the primary server, it will become effective only if the primary server becomes a secondary server after a failure.
