Hi, I've a few servers with nginx 1.2.3 that run a streaming services

Is there in nginx any "read_timeout" directive (like the send_timeout but
for the opposite) that shuts down the connection if the client has not send
any data for x time?

I'm looking for something also in beta stage, modules, plugin, patch...

Many thanks for your help
