are you referring to the timeout feature?

We currently use ActiveRDF to manage federation, and it is not 
customized to specific stores. As I've stated before, at the moment we 
are trying to keep Explorator as general as possible, so we are avoiding 
building server-specific versions (although we already did some for FTS...).
In general, if we think that Explorator can be used to explore the LoD 
cloud (with many different enpoints and servers), we cannot assume 
vendor-specific extensions.
