Ethernet etiquette !  Closing ?

I am new to ethernet, finally running on my private PCB.

 

I have an industrial scenario, many slaves talking to the master over can-bus, then the master is talking to a server on the cloud.

 

there will be several masters logged into the same cloud server.

 

the Master will transmit up to the server every minute, maybe 2K of data.

 

When should I close a connection ?

the example I have running sends 1 packet and closes the connection.

 

Should I send the 2K and then close it ?

 

or just leave it open forever ?
