Is there a disadvantage to setting a large client_inactivity_timeout?

I have a set of logs that sometimes only sends once every 3 days. Is it okay if I set the client_inactivity_timeout => 300000? What is the advantage to setting this value to a lower vs a higher value? Can I set it to 99999999999 without problem?

Are you referring to a logstash input? If so, which one?

beats i.e.

input {
	beats {
        port => 5044
        client_inactivity_timeout => 99999999

@Badger, any idea?

No, I am not familiar with it.
