Severity: 3-Major


Qkview enforces a timeout mechanism in various locations for its submodules. In certain conditions, when a timeout occurs, Qkview should still be able to collect what data it can before doing this check.


Data that might have been collected is not, which might result in missing helpful diagnostic information.


A particular timeout is encountered during a Qkview operation.


Work around the issue by increasing the qkview timeout, for example: qkview -t 720

Fix Information

Changed the timeout check to occur after important data collection.
