Automatically dump agent logs to the disk

      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
