Configuring timeout period for client operations

You can modify the Web Service configuration settings to resolve any timeout errors that occur during client operations like browsing or opening the selection tree nodes. These settings can be configured from the NetVault Server Settings page.

2
On the Configuration page, click Server Settings
3
Under Services, click Web Service. In the Web Service dialog box, configure the following setting.

Physical Client Short Timeout

The amount of time the Web Service waits for short duration operations, like requesting the plug-in list for a client.

The default timeout period is 30 seconds. You can change it to any value between 10 and 120 seconds.

Physical Client Medium Timeout

The amount of time the Web Service waits for medium duration operations, like removing a server (for example, Database Server).

The default timeout period is 60 seconds. You can change it to any value between 60 and 120 seconds.

Physical Client Long Timeout

The amount of time the Web Service waits for long duration operations, like populating the selection tree.

The default timeout period is 300 seconds. You can change it to any value between 120 and 600 seconds.

4
Click Apply to apply the new settings and close the dialog box.

Configuring timeout period for saveset removal request

By default, the timeout period for saveset removal request is set to 600 seconds. When the Web Service Worker Process (nvwsworker) sends the delete request to Media Manager, it waits for 600 seconds. If the Media Manager is unable to complete the request within this period, the Web Service Worker Process times out and reports an error (“Failed to receive reply from Media Manager”). If you receive this error, change the SavesetRemoveTimeout setting in the webservice.cfg file.

1
Open the file webservice.cfg in a text editor. You can find this file in the config directory under the NetVault Backup installation directory.
2
In the [WebService] section, configure the value for the SavesetRemoveTimeout setting:

Configuring Auditor Daemon settings

This section includes the following topics:

About Auditor Daemon

The Auditor Daemon (nvavp) tracks and controls all user activities in NetVault Backup. This process runs on the NetVault Backup Server. The Auditor Daemon validates each user request, and depending on the assigned privileges, allows or denies a request. Audit log messages are stored in the NetVault Database.

By default, the Auditor Daemon logs every user activity regardless of whether the request is granted or denied. It automatically deletes the log messages that are older than 31 days. You can configure the Auditor Daemon to log only failed user requests. You can also modify the default settings to change the maximum age for log messages.

You can modify the Auditor Daemon settings from the Change Settings page.
