That .js and .css are good enough reason to have keepalive turned on.

Regarding your original issue: how much time does it take to generate single 
response from Tornado? I'm asking, because you said that you've got 30 
blocking workers, which means that if single response takes around 100ms, 
then you can handle only about 300req/s.
