Persistent Server Connections – enable or disable?

I need a solution

I am noticing in our Symantec Management Agent installation logs the following:

<event date=’02/11/2020 11:59:52.0270000 -05:00′ severity=’4′ hostName=’jima’ source=’Agent’ module=’AeXNSAgent.exe’ process=’AeXNSAgent.exe’ pid=’20612′ thread=’22000′ tickCount=’8830984′ >
  <![CDATA[Failed to establish main persistent server connection, error: Persistent connection is disabled (0x8FA50007)]]>
</event>
<event date=’02/11/2020 11:59:52.0270000 -05:00′ severity=’4′ hostName=’jima’ source=’Agent’ module=’AeXNSAgent.exe’ process=’AeXNSAgent.exe’ pid=’20612′ thread=’22000′ tickCount=’8830984′ >
  <![CDATA[Failed to establish persistent server connection to ‘HTTP://<severname>:80/Altiris/WebSockets’ using ‘Matching’ connection profile, error: Persistent connection is disabled (0x8FA50007)]]>
</event>
 

So evidently we have persistent connections disabled.  Should we enable this feature? What are the pros/cons?  What are the questions we should ask before turning it on?  What is the downstream impact of turning it on?  What might break? 🙂

Thanks
Jim
