Timeout

Maximum time to wait for completion of instruction to server

Description

You configure Timeout to be the maximum time, in seconds, to wait for completion of a synchronous read or a synchronous write operation. If a time-out occurs, the read or write operation aborts. The default value is 10.

You can use Timeout to abort functions that block access to the MATLAB® command line.

For asynchronous read or write operations, Timeout specifies the time to wait for the server to acknowledge the request. It does not limit the time for the instruction to be completed by the server.
