Issue/Introduction

How long does a file watcher keeps waiting for the file before it exits, assuming that the file never comes in?  Is there a default timeout?

 

Environment

Release : 11.3.6

Component :

Resolution

File Watcher watches indefinitely for the conditions to satisfy, and/or the process is terminated somehow.

max_run_alarm / term_run_time could be used to put some boundaries around this.
