Terminate replication connections that are inactive longer than the specified number of milliseconds. This is useful for the sending server to detect a standby crash or network outage. A value of zero disables the timeout mechanism. This parameter can only be set in the postgresql.conf file or on the server command line. The default value is 60 seconds.

To prevent connections from being terminated prematurely, wal_receiver_status_interval must be enabled on the standby, and its value must be less than the value of replication_timeout.
