(Apologies for the delay due to Diwali)

As noted in your insights were really helpful. 

Keep alive works for other REST services, but not working for Hasura. (Keep-Alive requests:    0 Vs Keep-Alive requests:    200 for other services). Is Keep-Alive anything to do with the response headers of Hasura or its POST request?

But, even with keep-alive, usual performance of http vs https through nginx is around 50-100 times slow for any services. Are there any optimization approaches for the same? TIA
