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.

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.
