When stopping the server, disabling replication, or removing a replication agreement, there is a timeout on how long to wait before stopping replication when the server is under load. Prior to 1.3.1, the server could wait up to 20 minutes which would look like a hang. In 1.3.1 you can now configure this timeout, and the default timeout has been reduced to 2 minutes.
There could be cases where a timeout of 2 minutes is too long, or not long enough. There could also be situations where a particular agreement should be given more time before ending a replication session during a shutdown.
This attribute nsds5ReplicaProtocolTimeout can be added to the main replica configuration entry: e.g. Zcn=replica,cn=dc\3Dexample\2Cdc\3Dcom,cn=mapping tree,cn=config
Or, to the a replication agreement. The replication agreement protocol timeout will override the timeout set in main replica configuration entry. This allows some different timeout for different replication agreements.
nsds5ReplicaProtocolTimeout: <value in seconds> The default is 120 seconds.
This can be added the main replication config entry for a backend: cn=replica,cn=dc\3Dexample\2Cdc\3Dcom,cn=mapping tree,cn=config
Or to any replication agreement: cn=agmt to remote replica,cn=replica,cn=dc\3Dexample\2Cdc\3Dcom,cn=mapping tree,cn=config
If a replication session is in progress the new timeout will abort that session and allow the server to shutdown.
No external impact.
