DocumentManager.HibernateTimeout Property

Specifies the idle timeout after which an open document is hibernated.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web.Office

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v21.1.dll


public static TimeSpan HibernateTimeout { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

An object that specifies the idle timeout. TimeSpan.FromHours(1) by default.


When the document hibernation is enabled (EnableHibernation), the DocumentManager hibernates inactive open documents after an idle timeout passed. Use the HibernateTimeout property to specify the idle timeout value.

The HibernatedDocumentsDisposeTimeout property specifies how long hibernated documents are stored on the server before disposal.


The following code example demonstrates how hibernation settings can be defined in the Application_Start method. Some of the settings are optional.

<%@ Application Language="C#" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="DevExpress.Web.Office" %>
<script runat="server">
    void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e) {
        // Code that runs on application startup
        DocumentManager.HibernationStoragePath = Server.MapPath("~/App_Data/HibernationStorage/"); // Required setting
        DocumentManager.HibernateTimeout = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(30); // Optional setting
        DocumentManager.HibernatedDocumentsDisposeTimeout = TimeSpan.FromDays(1); // Optional setting
        DocumentManager.HibernateAllDocumentsOnApplicationEnd = true; // Optional setting
        DocumentManager.EnableHibernation = true; // Required setting to turn the hibernation on
