Bamboo jobs fail to start with BAMBOO-SSH-PROXY:[User session has timed out idling after 120000 ms.]

Hi All , we have several Github repos linked to bamboo and we have a couple of jobs that run in parallel. Recently we are seeing issues where the builds fail to start with the error :


com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.git.GitCommandException: command [/bin/git ls-remote ssh://somerepo.git] failed with code 128. Working directory was [/bms/webapps/bamboo/current/temp]., stderr:
Warning: Permanently added '[]:45737' (RSA) to the list of known hosts.
BAMBOO-SSH-PROXY: [User session has timed out idling after 120000 ms.]
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

It's not really a permission error because the same job on re-triggering works. I just want to understand where is the BAMBOO-SSH-PROXY configured and how to make sure that a lot of builds do not fail with the same error in future.
