Web Timing out Max setings

Currently I have my web config set up like this:
<system.web>
            <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="16384" executionTimeout="120"/>
            <authorization>
                  <allow roles="Admins"/>
            </authorization>
            <trace enabled="false" requestLimit="20" traceMode="SortByTime"/>

But still we are getting time outs.   How much farther can I go?

I suspect it has more to do with limited worker threads to the database.

You only have your executionTimeout set to 120 seconds or 2 minutes; therefore, (1) that is not too high and (2) what is the exact error you are dealing with? Are you getting a controlled timeout from application. Please clarify.

Additionally, I am involved with another question that reminded me that there are also ConnectionTimeout and CommandTimeout values you can set if using SqlConnection and SqlCommand from your .NET as an example. Definitely need to ensure you have the right combination of timeouts for your application need. My main point above is that I do not believe you have the timeout in the web.config set to the MAX as I believe you are reading the incorrect attribute. The one of interest there is executionTimeout, which is Int32 so have a max of 2,147,483,647 -- well above 120 and any value I would put in that setting.

ConnectionTimeout has a default of 15 seconds.
CommandTimeout has a default of 30 seconds.

Hope that helps!
