Wouldn't it make more sense to enable keep alive connections and increase
the thread count - if memory suffices?

Even if not, the keep-alive timeout should be decreased instead of disabled
all together.

Additionally I'd like to see tomcat to be able to drop keep-alive connection
exactly then, when all threads are busy and a new connection is to be
That would give us the benefit of keep alive connections - faster data
delivery for users - as well as optimal thread usage even on small thread

What is your opinion?
