i am using gvmd version 20.08.
I’ve been looking for an answer to the question for 2 hours, but unfortunately I can’t find one. I use python-gvm to download hundreds of reports (XML) and evaluate them centrally. Sometimes the reports contain the check of several 100 systems.
Due to the size of the reports, i get a socket timeout. Unfortunately I can’t find the option to extend the socket timeout (I know the option for GVM-Tools, but GVM-Tools can’t be used in this project).
I would be glad if you could tell me where to configure the socket timeout.
I thought the entire time that I have to use a configuration file, like it is used with services like GVMD or with the CLI tool gvm-tools. It was also not possible to find a solution in the API-documentation, which is why I put all my hopes in the configuration file.
The information IS in the API-documentation, but for whatever reason not in the main-documentation. You can find the timeout-option info in the “readthedocs”-startguide for the API under “Connections”. The timeout-option have to be configured for the specific class-object, the default timeout-time is 60 seconds and too short for some operations. I set the parameter to 3600 (1 hour), I don’t get timeouts anymore.
