HttpRuntimeSection.ExecutionTimeout Property

Gets or sets the allowed execution time for the request.

Namespace:  System.Web.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
[ConfigurationPropertyAttribute("executionTimeout", DefaultValue = "00:01:50")]
[TimeSpanValidatorAttribute(MinValueString = "00:00:00", MaxValueString = "10675199.02:48:05.4775807")]
public TimeSpan ExecutionTimeout { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.TimeSpan
A TimeSpan value that indicates the allowed execution time for the request.

The request execution time exceeded the limit set by the execution time-out.

The ExecutionTimeout property indicates the maximum number of seconds a request is allowed to execute before being automatically shut down by ASP.NET. The default is 110 seconds. This time-out applies only if the debug attribute in the <compilation> element is set to false.

If the time-out expires an exception is raised. You can record the related information in the Application folder of the Event Log. You do this by enabling the application health monitoring in the <healthMonitoring> configuration element.

The following example shows how to use the ExecutionTimeout property.

// Get the ExecutionTimeout property value.
Response.Write("ExecutionTimeout: " +
  configSection.ExecutionTimeout.ToString() + "<br>");

// Set the ExecutionTimeout property value to 2 minutes.
configSection.ExecutionTimeout = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(2);
