AJAX & closing/re-using open connections using XMLHTTPRequest
Posted on 2007-10-12
I use the XMLHTTPRequest & responsetext to simulate a server push for a data grid on my html page.
With only one client browser connected, if i run netstat -a i can see hundreds of connections in a state of "TIME-WAIT" and about 15 connections in state "ESTABLISHED"
The server performance is not affected by these connections never getting closed, but i doubt they're doing any good.
