$SQLTimeout

$SQLTimeout
gives the default time in seconds that DatabaseLink waits while opening connections and executing database queries.
  • To use $SQLTimeout, you first need to load DatabaseLink using Needs["DatabaseLink`"].
  • The default setting is Automatic, which means that default timeouts from the database itself should be used.
