Subject: timeout for very slow client


I have a question about the slow clients.

If a client (for example, a dial up client) is very slow and nginx needs a long time to send a big response to the client,  does nginx have a timeout mechanism for that? Or nginx will keep sending the response until all sent out?

I know we have a directive "send_timeout", but that's for " only between two successive write operations, not for the transmission of the whole response".

Thanks a lot,
