Do you change the connection timeout to 5 seconds?

Last updated by Brady Stroud [SSW] about 1 month ago.See history

By default, the connection timeout is 15 seconds. When it comes to testing if a connection is valid or not, 15 seconds is a long time for the user to wait. You should change the connection timeout inside your connection strings to 5 seconds.
