This property specifies the number of seconds before the system times out while trying to read a cuboid file on a particular query engine. If a time out occurs, a message is passed back to the user. This timeout is different from the BI server time out.

Values and behavior:

Any integer value represents the number of seconds for time out.

The value set as -1 prevents the cuboid reader from timing out.

Default value:

600 - Cuboid reads will time out after 600 seconds (10 minutes).


  • Connection: If the property is set at the connection, then the property value is applicable on all the eligible cubes from the next browsing instance.
  • Cube: If the property is set on a cube, then the value will override the connection level value for that cube and would be applicable from the next browsing instance.

Comes into effect:

The value of the property can be changed at any time without the need for a full rebuild. The property value will be respected only in the next browsing instance when cuboids are being read.

Dependencies and related properties:

The OLAP Engine setting SERVER_TIME_OUT (OlapEngine property) should be greater than or equal to this property.
