> I have a test setup using lighttpd (stock config, but with the port changed to port 82,
and logging disabled). I've created a small file (42 bytes) in /var/www/lighttpd/cl-test.html.
> I'm running Apache TS with a stock config ("gmake install") with the following configuration
changes:
> records.config:
> ---------------
> CONFIG proxy.config.http.server_port INT 80
> CONFIG proxy.config.http.cache.required_headers INT 2
> CONFIG proxy.config.log2.logging_enabled INT 0
> remap.config:
> -------------
> map http://loki.ogre.com/lighttpd/  http://localhost:82/
> I'm "benchmarking" this using "ab" from a second host, running a command like
> ab -c 20 -n 10000 http://loki.ogre.com/lighttpd/cl-test.html
> Test 1: I disable Keep-Alive in lighttpd, adding a configuration like this to /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf:
> server.max-keep-alive-requests = 0
> Test results are
> Requests per second:    9056.01 [#/sec] (mean)
> Time per request:       2.208 [ms] (mean)
> Time per request:       0.110 [ms] (mean, across all concurrent requests)
> Test 2: I enable Keep-Alive in lighttpd, with
> server.max-keep-alive-requests = 1000000
> Test results are:
> Requests per second:    4456.33 [#/sec] (mean)
> Time per request:       4.488 [ms] (mean)
> Time per request:       0.224 [ms] (mean, across all concurrent requests)
> This might not seem like a huge difference, but why would it be serving 2x fewer QPS
and 2x the latency with keep-alive to the origin server? If anything, I'd expect it to be
faster with keep-alive, right ? Shouldn't that be noticeably less work?
