This question has basically two parts.
is there any way or a plugin to add a time-out to the http connections? We have cases where external services get stuck and we get Jenkins UI APIs hanging for an infinite amount of time. Adding a timeout to them would at least close them out over time
is there an extension point to hook into for these http connections? We have an LB in front of our Jenkins servers and some impatient users will click refresh if the page doesn’t load instantly and they end up with 20-30 http connections to their name actvie. Want to see about limiting these users and the number of connections they can have.
