--timeout is an option for the "-L" switch and is informational only.
Persistence timeout is set using the "-p" switch, which *is* displayed
using "-S" (this one is using fwmarks rather than IP addresses):
[root@server ~]# ipvsadm -S
-A -f 5 -s rr -p 60
-a -f 5 -r localhost.localdomain:http -g -w 100
-a -f 5 -r other.machine.in.cluster:http -g -w 100
What is your client actually trying to achieve here?
