Timeouts Specification

The Timeouts object provides a mechanism to impose timing constraints on specific task operations, particularly execution. By setting these timeouts, users can ensure tasks don't run indefinitely and align them with intended durations.

Timeouts Parameters:

  • ExecutionTimeout (int: <optional>): Defines the maximum duration (in seconds) that a task is permitted to run. A value of zero indicates that there's no set timeout. This could be particularly useful for tasks that function as daemons and are designed to run indefinitely.

Utilizing the Timeouts judiciously helps in managing resource utilization and ensures tasks adhere to expected timelines, thereby enhancing the efficiency and predictability of job executions.
