Use or not to use KeepAlive?

sunmacet asked
Last Modified: 2008-08-06
There is server with 300+ virtual hosts using Plesk 8.6. Server has AMD 3100+ CPU and 2 GB of DDR2.

Would it be good to use KeepAlive as:
TimeOut 15
KeepAlive On
MaxKeepAliveRequests 100
KeepAliveTimeout 2

Or should the KeepAlive to be Off instead? Will there be memory problems or some issues with Plesk when using KeepAlive? Any other advice about the matter?

Thank you.
