The usual assumption is that clients that do not need to be connected
will disconnect, the server won't do it for them ;-)
If you wanted to do this you could write some script that pulls down the
list of connections from mgmt, looks at recv_oct_details.last_event and
send_oct_details.last_event, and closes connections that have been idle
for a certain amount of time.
It feels like quite an odd thing to want to do though - what will your
clients do when they get disconnected? I assume they won't just
reconnect. And if they know not to reconnect, why couldn't they
disconnect in the first place?
