Changing the Report Generation Timeout
Use this procedure to change the time that the PSM client waits for the PSM server to finish generating a report.
Report generation might require the PSM server to collect information from all network elements in the network. This might take some time, especially In slow networks. If the PSM client times out while waiting for report generation to complete, you can adjust the PSM client timeout value to be more appropriate for your network.
You do not need to change the timeout value if report generation works for your network.
When report generation fails due to a timeout, you will see an error icon in the lower right corner of the PSM client window. If you click on the error icon, you will see the following generic error indicating PSM client-server communication problems:
The parameter that dictates how long the PSM client waits for the report is found on the PSM client machine.
