The announcement for 2.17 mentioned the addition of timeouts on network
operations. This sounds like a very interesting feature. To say the
truth, this was the only feature that was still missing before I could
propose distcc as replacement at my job's place for our homemade, bogus
distributed compilation system. I just gave a try and it seems to work
very well :) Congratulations!
I would, however, have questions. I couldn't find any information about
this in the man page of distccd. Did I miss something, or is it really
What is the default timeout?
How frequently are hosts retried after a timeout (by default)? After a
connection failure (by default)?
Is there a way to control these values?
(I may submit a patch for the manual page if told how the feature works
and/or where in the code to look at.)
