Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 503758
hang check timeout defaults too low for -RT
Last modified: 2016-05-22 19:28:14 EDT
Description of problem:
The default value of the task hangcheck timer is hardcoded to 120 seconds. We need to replace this with a macro and conditional in the case of -RT.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
.29 RT kernels with hangcheck turned on.
I will build -20 today changing this default to 10 minutes (600s) as suggested by Rostedt and Jon. That will be the only change in the kernel so that we can compare the results and infere the impact of this change.

Luis, Clark, what do you think we should do with this bug?
Jon, it has already been addressed in V2.
