2. Keeps Alive

To reduce the bandwidth used by Web traffic, HTTP was extended to allow more than one request within a single connection. This is called a persistent connection or you can say that the connection is kept alive.

2.1 Keep Alive

If enabled, browsers can establish persistent connections. If disabled, the Web server will accept only one access per connection.

2.2 Keep Alive Timeout

This specifies the number of seconds to wait for the next request in a persistent connection. If it is exceeded, the connection is closed.

2.3 Max Keep Alive Requests

The maximum number of requests allowed during a persistent connection.
