--- Comment #2 from Tomas Kuthan <tomas.kuthan at oracle.com> ---
This feature was requested by a user, who claims that the large number
of opened, inactive but unterminated sftp client connections prolongs
fail-over to other cluster node, when performing regular maintenance
tasks. This extended fail-over time causes application outages, when
various application time outs are met.

With the ability to configure sftp-server to terminate inactive sftp
connections after time-out, the user hopes to keep the number of these
connections down and avoid application outages.
