PH timeout Server Configuration Option
Topic Status: Some information in this topic is preview and subject to change in future releases. Preview information describes new features or changes to existing features in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Community Technology Preview 2 (CTP2).
Use the PH timeout option to specify the time, in seconds, that the full-text protocol handler should wait to connect to a database before timing out. The default value is 60 seconds. Increase the ph timeout value when connection attempts are timing out due to temporary network issues.
The full-text protocol handler is hosted in the filter daemon host and is used to fetch from SQL Server the data to be full-text indexed. For more information about full-text search components, see Full-Text Search.
When attempting to fetch a data row, if the protocol handler cannot connect to SQL Server within the specified time, it reports a time-out error for that row. The full-text gatherer will retry the row later. For more information about the full-text gatherer, see Populate Full-Text Indexes.
