[Check_mk (english)] Any way to adjust the 110 second timeout for distributed actions?

  in some cases, when we do discovery for a new host on a distributed, slave node, the host responds slowly (especially across slow links). Thus, covering all the inventorizable MIBs takes a long time.

  However, the WATO times out after 110 seconds and cancels the process.

  Running cmk -I <host> from the slave node directly works fine.

  Same occurs also if we e.g. rename host that has a lot of graphing data etc to go through. We can see the cmk process still doing the find-replace operation when checked dirertly from slave node, but master does not like to wait.

  Where can we configure this 110 second "hard limit" for how long to wait for answer from distributed node? Even better would be if master would be aware that action is still ongoing even if it is taking a long time and give an *option* to cancel it if needed.

  Running 1.5.0p9.
