Run SSH Agent using a command on controller



  • John Seiberling

    I see that these launch commands have been running on the master for days. It appears they are persistent. Is this the expected behavior or are these threads lingering zombies that should not be present?

  • Steven Christenson

    I strongly suggest that if using the manual launch method, that additional commands be tossed into the mix.

    E.g. "env" so you can see what the environment is, "java --version" to be sure the default java is what is expected...

    And I know John's question is old, but yes, if you use manual launch, it spawns another process that persists for the duration of the connection.

    We have python based launch mechanisms for our persistent docker slaves (I mean agents :-) that linger.
