Operations' defaults (advisory minimum):

    start         timeout=1800
    stop          timeout=1800
    status        timeout=60
    monitor       timeout=60 interval=120
    methods       timeout=5


So your score may vary. The RA probably won't take that long, but we have VMs that need > 6 minutes to shut down. If you shut down 10 such VMs sequentially, you need to be patient (at least)...
