LONGWAIT is a system parameter that defines how much real time (in seconds) must elapse before the swapper considers a process to be temporarily idle. This parameter is applied to local event flag (LEF) and hibernate (HIB) waits to detect such conditions as an inactive terminal or ACP.

LONGWAIT has the DYNAMIC, GEN, and MAJOR attributes. On Alpha and Integrity servers, LONGWAIT is also an AUTOGEN-altered parameter.
