Using both keepalive requests and timeout

Hi All,
   I have a query, I tried setting keep alive_timeout to a non-zero value and found it not working correctly. Are there any related parameters for this?

Hi Valentin,
Thank you for clarifying that, however now that makes me wonder about this:
if we set our timeout value to 30s and did not set our requests value, does
this mean that the default requests value of 100 restriction is imposed or
does nginx only respect the timeout value explicitly declared?
Thank you again in advance

This is actually what the default value is about.

You may look to the documentation and see that most of directives have
its own default value that is used when the directive isn't specified
in the configuration.
