Keep-Alive

Disabling keep-alive might help your server if you suffer from a large number of open file descriptors.

  • defaults:
server.max-keep-alive-requests = 128
server.max-keep-alive-idle = 30
server.max-read-idle = 60
server.max-write-idle = 360
  • less...
server.max-keep-alive-requests = 8
server.max-keep-alive-idle = 8
  • Disabling keep-alive
server.max-keep-alive-requests = 0
