    Servers not marked down when the ServerIOTImeout expires and the
    plugin is configured not to retry the request.
    

Problem conclusion

  • By default, if buffering is not setup (so that plugin will
    retry), a server is not marked down when severiotimeout
    expires. However, with this code change, if you define
    serveriotimeout to be a negative value, the server will be
    marked down when the timeout expires. If you want servers
    marked down if they don't respond within 30 seconds, set
    serveriotimeout to -30.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fixpack 6.0.2.33, 6.1.0.23, and 7.0.0.3.  Please refer to the
