Does Buildbot retain a constant TCP socket to its server?

In short: yes. A little bit longer: It uses the Twisted
PerspectiveBroker protocol. That has nearly-transparent
reconnects (but as your case shows, not fully transparent),
and does regular ping messages to keep the connection
alive.


So it should be able to handle a failover from one link to
the other, but it's certainly better to bind it to the more
reliable transport. I believe you can somehow configure the
frequency of ping messages so that you network doesn't believe
the connection goes idle, plus it will attempt a reconnect
if the network did indeed cancel the connection.


If you wanted to study this further, you could look into the
slave's twisted log file.

Martin
