Session terminated with reason dropped or timeout

Hi,

User sessions are terminated with different reasons, see below:
confd[68]: audit user: user1/42 terminated session (reason: dropped)
confd[68]: audit user: user1/45 terminated session (reason: timeout)
confd[68]: audit user: user1/92 terminated session (reason: normal)

Could you help to clarify in what scenarios ConfD terminates session with dropped or timeout?

Thanks!

timeout is typically due to that one of idleTimeout (such as /confdConfig/netconf/idleTimeout) runs out. The reason dropped can be caused by a NETCONF session terminated with something else than the <close-session/> request, such as network disconnection or client abort; this possibly applies to other NB protocols too, not sure if there can be other reasons.
