That is my misunderstanding only .The CPU is 100% busy but it is not
that all the 100% is being utilized by our process and no other
process is getting the CPU time.  I will calculate an optimal value by
going through once more over the system during the peak CPU
utilization .
But I am still confused who is terminating the connection in our case
and on how is calculating the timeout value.
AS you mentioned in your first comment that it the kernel who is
terminating the connection , but based on what it is terminating
the connection . As you said earlier , Keep-alive allows us to detect
that a host is unreachable (e.g.
network failure, system crash, power failure, etc) , It is not going
to kill sshd ,

Apologies for repeating the same question , but I am still confused
regarding this.
