I tested coreutils-8.30 built from source on AIX 7.2,
both 64 bit and 32 bit, and both work fine:

   $ file src/timeout
   src/timeout: 64-bit XCOFF executable or object module not stripped
   $ /usr/bin/time ./src/timeout 2.3 sleep 5
   Real   2.31
   User   0.00
   System 0.00

   $ file src/timeout
   src/timeout: executable (RISC System/6000) or object module not stripped
   $ /usr/bin/time ./src/timeout 2.3 sleep 5
   Real   2.30
   User   0.00
   System 0.00


Perhaps it is a problem in the RPM package?

Please try to build from source code and see if you see experience the
issue.

regards,
  - assaf

'man 3p timer_create' says:

  EINVAL The specified clock ID is not defined.

No idea.  For an analysis, we need more information:
timeout version, OS/kernel version, and finally of course a reproducer,
i.e., the exact command line you were using.

timeout works well here:

  $ /usr/bin/time -f '%e' timeout 2.3 sleep 4.5
  Command exited with non-zero status 124
  2.30

Have a nice day,
Berny

I suggest debugging the problem by using "strace timeout ..." rather 
than plain "timeout ...".

Hello,

I need to use your timeout tool.

But when I tried it works with these not very nice message...
"timeout: warning: timer_create: Invalid argument"

Can I help me?

Kind regards,
Rudy
