session timeout

Hi all,
Is it possible to set a session timeout on sql 2000 or 2005 ?
If so, where? TIA

I don’t think there is anything sql server called session timeout but "query governor cost limit" Option is the one you are looking for…
Check BOL topic "query governor cost limit Option" MohammedU.

What session timeout you are referring?
As suggested you can set on the query governor cost limit option.
If you are using application then this will help you.
Vyas’s will help you too.
Now comes the question how long this value can exist? By default, in ASP.NET its 20 minutes.
As you all know, we can set the session timeout for an application in our web.config itself. But if you were thinking that 90 minutes is the maximum limit we can set for it, then you are wrong. The maximum limit for session timeout is 525,600 minutes — i.e., 365 days x 24 hours x 60 min. Yep you are right .. its valid for one year.
