Thanks to both of you. Great work.

If I understand correctly, the only way to use upstream_keepalive module is with upstream module. This implies I cannot use upstream_keepalive where the upstream is identified by a variable. For example:

proxy_pass http://$host$request_uri;

Is my understand correct? Is there a way around this restriction?
