this is my config for a web server that does only static files mostly gifs,
pngs and jpgs.. is there any improvement i can do in this like is there some
sort of caching that can be enabled? or any other improvements that can be
done to this..

#user  mark;
worker_processes  1;
error_log  logs/error_staticfarm.log;

pid        logs/;
events {
    worker_connections  1024;

http {
    include       mime.types;
    default_type  application/octet-stream;

    #access_log  logs/access_staticfarm.log;

    sendfile        on;
    #tcp_nopush     on;

    keepalive_timeout  0;
    #keepalive_timeout  10;

    gzip  on;
    server {
        listen       6080;
        server_name  localhost;
        #access_log  logs/host.access.log  main;
        location /nginx_status {
            stub_status on;
            access_log   off;
        location /static{
            root   /home/mark/staticfarm/;
            access_log   off;
