VPN Up and Idle Sessions - How to clear ?

Does anyone know of a way to clear or configure a setting to clear Up and Idle vpn sessions.

The text below shows an edited 'sh cry sess brief'

Status: A- Active, U - Up, D - Down, I - Idle, S - Standby, N - Negotiating
        K - No IKE
ivrf = xxxxxxxxx

           Peer     I/F        Username          Group/Phase1_id   Uptime Status
     a.d.e.159   Gi0/0                                cust. id 07:47:39    UA

As it appears that the users at the remote end are not terminating their vpn sessions correctly and want to clear the unused sessions.

Thanks

You can clear the sessions with the following command:

rtr#clear crypto session ?

  active    Clears HA-enabled crypto sessions in the active state

  fvrf      Front-door VRF

  isakmp    Clear crypto sessions belonging to the group

  ivrf      Inside VRF

  local     Clear crypto sessions for a local crypto endpoint

  remote    Clear crypto sessions for a remote IKE peer

  standby   Clears HA-enabled crypto sessions in the standby state

  username  Clear crypto sessions of a user

 

But there is no option to clear only the idle sessions. You have to clear them individually.

Yes, I known I can clear them manually, I was hoping that there may be a idle-time out setting or something along those lines that would detect no traffic on the vpn session and clear them that way.
