3.8.24 ExpireAfter

This parameter controls the global value of the ExpireAfter parameter. @xref{Spamming and security,Spamming and security,Spamming and security,cfengine-Tutorial}. This parameter controls the maximum time in minutes which a cfengine action is allowed to live. After this time cfengine will try to kill the cfengine which seems to have hung and attempt to restart the action.

 ExpireAfter = ( time-in-minutes )

This parameter may also be set per action in the action sequence by appending a pseudo-class called ExpireAftertime. For instance,

 actionsequence = ( copy.ExpireAfter15 )

sets the expiry time parameter to 15 minutes for this copy command.
