Sadly, there are two problems affecting the main buildbots here at MSRC:
1. the firewall randomly closes connections (I have a long-standing support
ticket open - they suspect a bug in the firewall software but haven't been
able to find it yet)
2. BuildBot can't cope with dropped connections in the middle of a build.
Again I have a ticket open against BuildBot but fixing it apparently
requires large amounts of infrastructure refactoring, so it's currently
scheduled for the next-but-one major release of BuildBot, which could be
months or years away.
which together mean that most of our buildbot builds fail with "lost".
Sigh. For this reason I've left our old nightly builds in place, on
x86/Linux, and I also don't tend to look much at buildbot results much,
which is bad.
If anyone can think of a way to work around this, I'm open to suggestions.
I've heard that using SSH in tunneling mode might help, but will it
really re-connect automatically and invisibly to the client?
