We're getting multiple errors per day like the following:
Caught exception communicating with perforce. No output for: p4 describe
-s 565785 com.tek42.perforce.PerforceException: No output for: p4 describe
ERROR: Unable to communicate with perforce. No output for: p4 describe -s
The actual p4 command being executed and the executor that the error happens on can vary, but the error is always
"Unable to communicate with perforce". It may not even be the first p4 command in the build job. Unfortunately I can't isolate the error any further than that, but I've never seen it happen with a manually started build if that helps.
If we rerun the build after getting this error it always seems to go through successfully.
This started to happen after we upgraded to Hudson 1.387 and Perforce plugin 1.1.12. Our previous version was pretty old (Hudson 1.358) if that helps.
