Timeout SSH Command in Threads
I have a problem with timeouts in threads.
I'm using Net::SSH::Perl with Thread::Pool in a script (which runs as daemon).
There I'd like to set a timeout for the SSH command execution.
The problem is that an timeout realized with eval & alarm fires through all evals and quits the script with the output "Alarm clock".
Has anybody faced this issue too? Has anybody a solution for this issue?
I've spent a lot of time searching some books and the web but I wasn't able to find anything.
So please can anybody help me?
