Oracle 10g Improved Network Outage Detection

sqlnet.send_timeout – This parameter is used to limit the time, in seconds, for a database server to complete a send operation to clients after a connection is established.

sqlnet.send_timeout is used for environments in which clients occasionally shut down either abnormally or deliberately. When this parameter is set and the database server is unable to complete a send operation in the time specified, it will log the following errors in the sqlnet.log file:

  • ORA-12535: TNS: operation timed out

  • ORA-12608: TNS: Send timeout

When this parameter is not present, the database server will continue to send responses to clients that are unable to receive data due to a shutdown computer or a busy state.
