Interval to send keep alive messages through the open socketsΒΆ

!temp sys.KeepAliveInterval,,u4

Keep alive interval

Version >= 6.0.3

If sys.KeepAliveInterval is non-zero, Sculptor sends keepalive messages on all sockets when there is no other traffic. The interval is in seconds. The maximum time there can be no traffic on a socket is twice the interval. Once this value is set, a timer is started and further changes to the interval are ignored.

This feature is useful on networks that automatically close a socket connection after a time-out period. This is one cause of socket errors.

The default value of sys.KeepAliveInterval is 0.


sys.KeepAliveInterval = 60
