The following commands are executed in a script to start Vertica.

admintools -t start_db -d DBNAME -p DBPASSWD

This time, the startup failed, and after checking the logs, it appears that the reason is that it took a long time to start.
Therefore, I am considering specifying the --timeout option to the admintools command, but how many is the default value of timeout to begin with?
If you know how to check, please respond.

    According to the admintools help:

    -i, --noprompts do not stop and wait for user input(default false). Setting this implies a timeout of 20 min.

    Have you also checked startup.log and bootstrap-catalog.log in the catalog folder to ensure there were no other issues during startup?
