DirectorySearcher.ServerPageTimeLimit Property


Gets or sets a value indicating the maximum amount of time the server should search for an individual page of results. This is not the same as the time limit for the entire search.

 property TimeSpan ServerPageTimeLimit { TimeSpan get(); void set(TimeSpan value); };
public TimeSpan ServerPageTimeLimit { get; set; }
member this.ServerPageTimeLimit : TimeSpan with get, set
Public Property ServerPageTimeLimit As TimeSpan

Property Value

A TimeSpan that represents the amount of time the server should search for a page of results.

The default value is -1 seconds, which means to search indefinitely.



The minimum resolution of this property is one second. Fractions of seconds are ignored.

When the time limit is reached, the server stops searching and returns the results that have accumulated up to that point, along with a cookie containing the information about where to resume searching.


This property only applies to searches where PageSize is set to a value that is not the default of -1.
