Passenger and KeepAlive


I've learned today that when I turn on the KeepAlive option in
httpd.conf the experience is much better, particularly on a slower VPN

We do not turn that on by default. What are experiences with this in
production deployment?

…default installer options snippet…

Timeout 120
KeepAlive Off
MaxKeepAliveRequests 100
KeepAliveTimeout 15

From what I've learned from the internet, this setting can be
problematic when used together with mod_passenger in some scenarios
(memory consumption).
