In Jenkins common SSH and JNLP slaves do not dump logs to the disk by default. It complicates the analysis of connectivity issues.
- After specifying an option, remoting starts forwarding its logs to the disk
- Logs are being put to a special directory, which may potentially contain additional files
- By default Jenkins should not enable this directory since there are many potential compatibility issues (alternative - create it in the .jenkins directory with a kind of unique ID for the remoting instance)
- Nice2Have: These logs can be rotated easily using internal settings or external mechanisms
