Heartbeat interval and timeout: why 3 secs and 10 min?
André Oriani 2013-03-08, 01:37
Hi,

Is there any particular reason why the default heartbeat interval is 3
seconds and the timeout is 10 minutes? Everywhere I looked (code, Google,
..) only mentions  the values but no clue on why those values were chosen.
Thanks in advance,
André Oriani
