We’re working on a server-to-server integration effort, using nginx as
our front end. The guys on the other side are using ab (ApacheBench) to
perform initial testing. ApacheBench includes a switch to turn on
keepalive request support, but it only sends HTTP/1.0 requests.
Our research on keepalives using HTTP/1.0 is inconclusive. Some
state that it is loosely supported, while other sources don’t make that
Question: Is it possible to enable support for keep-alive connections
If it matters, gzip is disabled in our config (we were hoping that it
would result in the content-length header being set).
