500 Connection timed out

Hi Experts,

Few users who are accessing SA via portal and not via GUI are facing time out issue for particular sales > Trade spend application. While same is working for those who have SAP logon oad and is logging in via that. The error message is shown below:

500 Connection Timed out

Error -5

Version 7000

Component ICM

Module icxxthr.c

Line 2698

Server ---

Error tag {-}

Details : Connection to partner timed out after 60 seconds

Following are few related parameters with their current values in out ECC system:

rdisp/gui_auto_logout 7200

icm/keep_alive_timeout 90

rdisp/gui_auto_logout 7200

rdisp/plugin_auto_logout 1800

In SM21; it shows error:

HTTP/RFC session has been deleted following timeout

Run-time error "TIME_OUT" occurred

> Short dump "110426 105848 " created

This is in ECC system with basis level SAPKB70021>

It appears parameters are correct and also those who login and access this sales application via loggin in with logon pad do not face this proble. Only those who use SAP via portal are facing this issue

    Hi Varun,

    In SAP we can change the HTTP parameter value dynamically.

    Please execute the transaction SMICM and go to services in menu tab and change the value of HTTP to 3600 and let me know if still facing the issue.

    To fix the issue permanetly set the following parameter icm/server_port_0= PROT=HTTP,PORT=80$$,TIMEOUT=3000,PROCTIMEOUT=3600 and restart the system.

    Thanks &Regards,

    Devender

      Hi,

      Setting the ICM PROCTIMEOUT value to 3600 (1 hour !) is, in my opinion, a very bad idea : it is much too long.

      You will keep too much unactive connections, and so consume too much resources.

      It is logical to choose a value just slightly longer than the ABAP time out rdisp/max_wprun_time.

      In my systems, rdisp/max_wprun_time is set to 600 s (10 minutes) and the ICM PROCTIMEOUT is set to 620 seconds.

      PS : Of course the Portal time out has to be longer than the ICM abap PROCTIMEOUT...

      Regards,

      Olivier

    Hi,

    Check your ICM timeout parameters :

    icm/server_port : values for TIMEOUT and PROCTIMEOUT

    Most probably the problem comes from a value too small for PROCTIMEOUT.

      Hi Oliver,

      Could you please update how can i verify PROCTIMEOUT . There is no profile parameter named as PROCTIMEOUT in profile parameters.

      The valuew of ICM server port is

      icm/server_port_0 = PROT=HTTP,PORT=8000

      Thanks,

      Varun

    Change this parameter value icm/keep_alive_timeout by default 60 seconds.

    Thanks

      Hello Varun,

      Again the users are connecting to your ABAP system using portal as front end.

      If ICM has all settings fine then if the user session is timing out after 10 minuts its standard.

      As the query being executed exceed the maximum dialogue workjprocess runtime the transaction will time out.

      Try to get information on what user is trying to do on the system and all HTTP sessions connect to ABAP using dialogue workprocess.

      If its for a short duration till they process that part of the transaction you can increase the dialogie work process time out to higher values rdisp/max_wprun_time. This parameter is always 600 as standard.

      Regards

      Vivek
