This configuration parameter specifies the maximum time, in seconds, to allow for a single mapping program to complete execution. If a mapping program takes longer than this period to successfully complete its execution, the process is stopped and the next mapping program is started.

In most cases, you set this configuration parameter using group policy. You can, however, set it manually in the configuration file if you want to temporarily override group policy.

If you are manually setting this parameter, the parameter value must be a positive integer that is less than the value set for the gp.mappers.timeout.all parameter. For example, to set the timeout interval to 60 seconds:

gp.mappers.timeout: 60

The default value for this parameter on Mac is 120 seconds.

The default value for this parameter on all other platforms is 30 seconds.
