(PC) Support tip: Configuring timeouts and requests size in PC

How to increase the timeout settings and requests size for the REST requests, page downloads, monitor configurations and network communication from a PC Server

Below are the general definitions that can be added/configured to the web.config file on the PCS to change the server’s request and response timeouts

The 3 important properties are:

executionTimeout - Indicates the maximum number of seconds that server will spend processing a request (for example, will influence ASP.Net requests).

maxRequestLength - Specifies the maximum request size, in kilobytes (KB)

maxAllowedContentLength - Specifies the maximum length of content in a request, in bytes.

User can update these values in a web.config file as the below example:


    <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="163840" executionTimeout="600"   />





        <requestLimits maxAllowedContentLength="167772160" ></requestLimits>



Attached is a sample web.config file containing these changes that can be replaced under <PC install>\PCWEB folder
