## If a TCP connection is inactive, time it out after this interval. If 0 secs,
## then don't time it out.
## .. bro:see:: udp_inactivity_timeout icmp_inactivity_timeout set_inactivity_timeout
const tcp_inactivity_timeout = 5 min &redef;
## If a UDP flow is inactive, time it out after this interval. If 0 secs, then
## don't time it out.
## .. bro:see:: tcp_inactivity_timeout icmp_inactivity_timeout set_inactivity_timeout
const udp_inactivity_timeout = 1 min &redef;
## If an ICMP flow is inactive, time it out after this interval. If 0 secs, then
## don't time it out.
