I have a couple of questions regarding SAS Studio timing out.

 

What is the default inactivity time-out value for Enterprise SAS Studio?

 

I know the following is not the best use case of SAS Studio, but it is all I have for now. 

 

If I submit a long running SAS program (5+ hours) from SAS Studio, will SAS Studio time-out on me?  If it does time-out then will the SAS session running my long running program be killed or will it continue to run until it completes?

As far as I'm aware there are no time-out restrictions or settings within SAS Studio itself.

 

Time-out limits can be set on SAS Workspace Servers - where SAS Studio runs SAS jobs - by SAS Server Administrators. The default value on installation is 0 which means no time-out. This can be changed by a SAS Administrator so is a site-specific setting. If you have access to SAS Management Console you may be able to check your server settings yourself.

 

However it is more than likely that TCP/IP network and firewall rule time-out settings will trump any SAS server time-out. This means that the network connection(s) between SAS Studio and the SAS Workspace will be dropped if they are inactive for the period of the time-out settings in your network. Again these are site-specific and you would have to consult a IT network specialist to find these out.

 

If you are really lucky these settings might be recorded in your organisation's SAS architecture design specs.

You can also use the Time-out interval option in the Preferences dialog box to set the time-out (in hours) for your SAS Studio session. According to the doc, the default time-out is 1 hour.  For more information about Preferences, see http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/webeditorug/68828/HTML/default/viewer.htm#p0oojc464gfpud... 

 

If your SAS Studio administrator needs to increase this interval for everyone at your site, he can use a configuration property to set the default value that appears in the Preferences dialog box. For more information about this configuration option, see http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/webeditorag/68830/HTML/default/viewer.htm#p1ghk2x06a9nkn...

Looks like a time-out prefernce was added to a more recent version of SAS Studio than we have - 3.2.

One more piece of relevant info - Studio 3.5 (released 16FEB2016) added a batch submit feature to allow you to submit code and continue working or disconnect which is helpful for long running code.  Here are two Studio FAQs that talk about what's been covered in this thread:

Can I submit more than one job at a time in SAS Studio?

What happens if I close my browser or time out before my SAS code finishes executing?
