HTTP settings determine the parameters of the connection on the protocol level, including timeout value, and so on.
Modifying timeout settings is recommended only to advanced users. Do not modify these settings unless you exactly know what you are doing.
To create a new HTTP settings profile or edit an existing one
Navigate to the Settings tab of the HTTP Control menu item and click to create a HTTP setting profile. Enter a name for the profile (for example http_special).
Figure 165: HTTP Control > Settings — Creating and editing protocol-level HTTP settings
Click to display the parameters of the profile.
Modify the parameters as needed. The following parameters are available:
Idle timeout: Timeout value for the session in seconds. To avoid early timeout, set it to a larger value, for example a week (604800 seconds).
Determining if a connection is idle is based on the network traffic generated by the connection, not the activity of the user. For example, if an application or the taskbar of a graphical desktop displays the time which is updated every minute, it generates network traffic every minute, negating the effects of timeout values greater than one minute and preventing SPS from closing the connection.
Session timeout: Timeout value for the session in seconds.
Enable pre channel check: Select this option to evaluate the connection and channel policies before establishing the server-side connection. That way if the connection is not permitted at all, SPS does not establish the server-side connection.
This option cannot be disabled.
To distinguish the audited HTTP requests and responses based on the session cookies of web applications, click Session Cookie Settings > , and enter the name of the session cookie, for example, PHPSESSID, JSESSIONID, or ASP.NET_SessionId. Note that the names of session cookies are case sensitive.
Repeat this step to add multiple cookie names. Note that if you list multiple cookie names, SPS will use the first one it finds to assign the requests to a session.
Select this settings profile in the HTTP settings field of your connections.
