Keepalive connections with upstream servers are disabled by 
default.  That is, it is enough to remove the "keepalive" 
directive from the upstream block to disable connection cache 

Note that you may also want to adjust proxying configuration to 
ensure connections are closed by the upstream server when 
possible.  In particular, make sure you are not using 
"proxy_set_header Connection "";" with HTTP proxying and/or 
"fastcgi_keep_conn on;" with FastCGI.

See http://nginx.org/r/keepalive for details.
