adjusting timings for large reports with high query runtime/execution: BIPCatalogUtil.sh [2319261.1]

<property name="server.ENFORCE_CUSTOM_REPORT_SQL_TIMEOUT">true</property>
<property name="server.MAX_ONLINE_REPORT_SQL_TIMEOUT_LIMIT">600</property>  
<property name="server.MAX_OFFLINE_REPORT_SQL_TIMEOUT_LIMIT">3600</property>

These are run time properties added to xdo.cfg file located at xdo repository/admin/configuration folder.

With the above settings the WebLogic Server has a default time out of 600 seconds for each thread that spans for a request.

This was introduced to reduce the number of threads marked as "Stuck" by the WebLogic Server, otherwsie when the number
of Stuck threads reaches 25, the Weblogic server restarts.

1. Navigate to the following directory:

[middleware_home]/user_projects/domains/bifoundation_domain/config/bipublisher/repository/Admin/Configuration

2. Modify the xdo.cfg file and increase the following properties based upon the sql query runtime for your reports, for
example:

<property name="server.ENFORCE_CUSTOM_REPORT_SQL_TIMEOUT">true</property>
<property name="server.MAX_ONLINE_REPORT_SQL_TIMEOUT_LIMIT">10000</property>
