Fix Version/s: None
Some scalability tests against dCache (webDAV) showed that better handling of timeouts and retries were necessary as well as improvements in the management of persistent HTTP connexions to avoid overwhelming the servers when thousands of clients execute simultaneously.
In this issue I propose modifications to improve the situation and some refactoring for making the code simpler when possible including renaming of environment variables previously named LSST_BUTLER_*.

We have approved this for backporting if you want to do it. We think that v23.0.2rc1 will be made around the end of March.
Thank you. I think I am done with the bulk of the back port work. I will push tomorrow.
This back port is ready for review.

Pull request merged, thanks a lot for your help.
I am closing this issue.
Yusra AlSayyad is planning to do a v23.0.2 for step 4 so backporting is going to be needed if you want to avoid local patching in the future. Add the backport requested tag if you decide that backporting is something you want to do.
