setting timeout value

Frequent Advisor

setting timeout value



   for HOST in $(< /tmp/hostdetails.txt); do
   echo $HOST
   ssh  $HOST uptime | awk -F, '{sub(".*up", "", $1);print $1,$2}'
   done >> uptime.log


suppose if a host is unavailable  during uptime check,it should skip that particular host and check for the other server.

Try -o ConnectTimeout=##

-o option
Can be used to give options in the format used in the configuration file.  This is useful for specifying options for  which there is no separate command-line flag.  For full details of the options listed below, and their possible values, see  ssh_config(5).
