Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1273544
enable KeepAlive for bugzilla.redhat.com?
Last modified: 2016-08-15 21:35:16 EDT
HTTP KeepAlive doesn't seem to be enabled for bugzilla.redhat.com. Maybe there's explicit reasons, but if not, it could be a decent time and bandwidth saver for XMLRPC users via python-bugzilla.
I see the bugzilla docs mention that it should be disabled: https://www.bugzilla.org/docs/4.4/en/html/configuration.html
But FWIW it appears bugzilla.mozilla.org _does_ have KeepAlive enabled:
$ curl -Iv https://bugzilla.mozilla.org 2>&1 | grep -i 'connection #0'
* Connection #0 to host bugzilla.mozilla.org left intact
Muhammad, I think we should get some performance testing on KeepALive on and off as part of the BZ 5.0 upgrade.
While it does mean the server needs to serve more connections simultaneously it also means that the ajax requests should be handled faster for web users, so it's worth comparing them during a stress test.
Note if/when this is enabled on partner-bugzilla.redhat.com I can give it a spin
Taking this out of sprints until we have agreed with Ops on how we want to run this.
