If the system is slow, it would take too much time to run the test.
Decrease the number of attempts to be able to run this test
in a reasonable time.

For this test, I tried it with a LTP_TIMEOUT_MUL variable equals to 10.
The test runs over 50min and still fails because of a timeout.
It is certainly because my system is slow so I thought we could reduce
the number of attempts.

Let me know if you have a better idea on how to implement that.

Thank you in advance,
Best regards,
