#1738 Decrease the krb5_auth_timeout default value of 15
Closed: Fixed None Opened 6 years ago by kaushikub.

The current value of 15 for krb5_auth_timeout makes failover of krb5_server(krb5_server=SERVER1,SERVER2) quite slow(15seconds) in certain scenarios, e.g.

  • if SERVER1 machine is down
  • if packets are DROPPED in SERVER1

Setting krb5_auth_timeout=6 in the above cases allows failover to happen in 6 seconds.

Not sure why krb5_auth_timeout is defaulted to 15. I would suggest it to be lowered to 6.
