How to know default settings


I wanted to know the default settings for

  • timeout server
  • timeout client
  • timeout connect

However I can’t find this information in the documentation or with Google.


Refer to the documentation of the specific configuration argument:

An unspecified timeout results in an infinite timeout, which
is not recommended. Such a usage is accepted and works but reports a warning
during startup because it may result in accumulation of expired sessions in
the system if the system’s timeouts are not configured either.


I was looking on HAProxy Documentation Converter, not sure why Google can’t find official documentation.
