In Node.js, default server timeout is 0 milliseconds for the latest version and 2min i.e. (120000 milliseconds) for the older version.

Syntax:

server.timeout

Parameters: It does not accept any argument as a parameter.

Return Value: This property returns the default timeout value in milliseconds.

Example 1: Filename: index.js

Javascript




// Node.js program to demonstrate the 
// server.timeout APi
   
// Importing http module
var http = require('http');
   
// Setting up PORT
const PORT = process.env.PORT || 3000;
   
// Creating http Server
var httpServer = http.createServer(
  function(request, response){
 
  // Getting the reference of the
  // underlying socket object
  // by using socket API
  const value = response.socket;
   
  // Display result
  // by using end() api
  response.end( "socket buffersize : "
      + value.bufferSize, 'utf8', () => {
      console.log("Displaying the result...");
 
      // Closing server by
      // using close() api
      httpServer.close(()=>{
          console.log("Server is closed")
      })
  });
});
   
// Listening to http Server
// by using listen() api
httpServer.listen(PORT, () => {
    console.log("Server is running at port 3000...");
});
 
// Getting default timeout value
// by using timeout api
const v = httpServer.timeout
 
// Display the Timeout value
console.log('Default time out value :- ' + v)

Run index.js file using below command:

node index.js

Console output:

Default time out value :- 0
Server is running at port 3000...
Displaying the result...
Displaying the result...
Server is closed
Server is closed

Browser Output: Paste the localhost address http://localhost:3000/ in the search bar of the browser.

socket buffersize : 0

Example 2: Filename: index.js

Javascript




// Node.js program to demonstrate the 
// server.timeout APi
   
// Importing http module
var http = require('http');
 
// Request and response handler
const http2Handlers = (request, response) => {
   
  // Getting the reference of the
  // underlying socket object
  // by using socket API
  const value = response.socket;
   
  // Display result
  // by using end() api
  response.end( "socket local address : "
      + value.localAddress, 'utf8', () => {
      console.log("Displaying the result...");
 
      // Closing server
      // by using close() api
      httpServer.close(()=>{
          console.log("Server is closed")
      })
  });
  };
   
// Listening to http Server
// by using listen() api
var httpServer = http.createServer(
    http2Handlers).listen(3000, () => {
    console.log("Server is running at port 3000...");
});
 
// Getting default timeout value
// by using timeout api
const v = httpServer.timeout
 
// Display the Default time
console.log('Default time out value :- ' + v)

Run index.js file using below command:

node index.js

Console Output:

Default time out value :- 0
Server is running at port 3000...
Displaying the result...
Displaying the result...
Server is closed
Server is closed

Browser Output: Paste the localhost address http://localhost:3000/ in the search bar of the browser.
