WL#1907: Add client timeouts for read/write
Affects: Server-7.1 — Status: Un-Assigned — Priority: Medium
Now there is no way for a client to timeout on a read/write to the server. In the case of the server going down, the client may hang up to 10 minutes (Linux keep-alive is not configurable per connection and default is quite high) See http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=4143 What to do: - If the user sets readtimeout/writetimeout with mysql_options(), invoke in net.c code that will abort if the timeout is reached. - If one doesn't use timeouts, we should use simple read/writes to get maximum speed. One should be able to do it similar to the way we handle connect() timeouts in libmysql.c
