time out

Timeouts are time limits in which certain events are expected. If these time limits are exceeded without feedback, the event or the confirmation

is requested again. A time limit shortens the waiting time and accelerates the data flow. Therefore, time-outs are used in communication to avoid unwanted delays and improve data flow. For example, in the request-response procedure and in the transmission of data packets. If the time-out is exceeded, for example, because of a packet loss, the data source retransmits the corresponding data packet to the data sink. Time-outs are also used to determine the maximum response time during polling and addressing before a procedure is automatically re-initiated.
