     It depends on what platform your server is on.  On unix platforms this 
     is normally handled by the TCP/IP Keep Alive parameter, which sets the 
     frequency that the server should poll the client to see if it's still 
     there.  When unix notices that a client is no longer connected, it 
     notifies Sybase and Sybase disconnects the process.
     I would imagine that NT would have something similar.
     Good luck,

I am seeking seeking help on whether System 11 supports a configuration 
parameter which will automatically kill a process after a certain clock 
time has expired, say ten minutes.
We have a situation where a browser client or Web Server client (SybPerl) 
is being terminated before the Sybase server has returned all the results. 
The Sybase process then goes into a sleep state but holds locks needed by 
other processes indefinitely.
Thanks in advance for any help.
