I recently re-configured my httpd.conf configuration to enable KeepAlive, and it drastically improved the page load speeds. But, today I had a medium-sized spike in traffic. We're talking <10k pageviews. And my webpage slowed to a halt. Load times spiked from 2 seconds to 50-60 seconds.
My website does not bring in a ridiculous amount of traffic... usually a lot <15k pageviews per day. It's a Wordpress blog with a decent amount of images, but not too many.
My current KeepAlive configuration is the default one:
Should I change these values? Should I disable KeepAlive and just accept the mediocre page load speeds? If anyone can help me out... I'd be more than willing to donate via PayPal for your valuable time.
