With it I can
autossh -M50000 -t -D1080 -Nf crashingdaily.com
to keep a seemingly persistent SOCKS proxy running.
autossh -M50000 -t crashingdaily.com 'screen -aAdR autossh'
to maintain an interactive session.
The value that I missed earlier is that the connections are maintained (re-established, actually) even if I change networks – which my laptop and I often do.
Jon’s View has a nice posting on using autossh for SOCKS proxying.
And Dread Pirate PJ has a good instruction for combining autossh and screen for persistent interactive sessions.
I don’t care enough about YSlow tests to setup and maintain another test harness just for that purpose, so I don’t think I’ll be trying it myself. For others who get in to this sort of thing, here’s something to get in to.
Well, I tried this with my Selenium RC setup, testing one page. In my setup, two beacons are sent by YSlow to the Show Slow database but the urls recorded,
are not the ones for the page under test. Neither report generated from selenium matches the report I get from the standalone browser so it’s not just a matter of the url being misreported to Show Slow.
