Subject [jira] [Created] (MESOS-9209) Include 'Connection: close' header in agent streaming API responses.

Benjamin Mahler created MESOS-9209:

             Summary: Include 'Connection: close' header in agent streaming API responses.
                 Key: MESOS-9209
             Project: Mesos
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HTTP API
            Reporter: Benjamin Mahler
            Assignee: Benjamin Mahler

We've seen some HTTP intermediaries (e.g. ELB) decide to re-use connections to mesos as an
optimization to avoid re-connection overhead. As a result, when the end-client of the streaming
API disconnects from the intermediary, the intermediary leaves the connection to mesos open
in an attempt to re-use the connection for another request once the response completes. Mesos
then thinks that the subscriber never disconnected and the intermediary happily continues
to read the streaming events even though there's no end-client.

To help indicate to intermediaries that the connection SHOULD NOT be re-used, we can set the
'Connection: close' header for streaming API responses. It may not be respected (since the
language seems to be SHOULD NOT), but some intermediaries may respect it and close the connection
if the end-client disconnects.

Note that libprocess' http server currently doesn't close the the connection based on a handler
setting this header, but it doesn't matter here since the streaming API responses are infinite.
