LWP::ConnCache::MaxKeepAliveRequests - A connection cache that enforces a max keep alive limit
use LWP; use LWP::ConnCache::MaxKeepAliveRequests; my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new; $ua->conn_cache( LWP::ConnCache::MaxKeepAliveRequests->new( total_capacity => 10, max_keep_alive_requests => 100, ) );
LWP::UserAgent is the default module for issuing HTTP requests from Perl. It has a keep_alive setting which by default allows unlimited requests to the same server. Some servers will disconnect you after a limited number of requests (in Apache 2 this is achieved with the MaxKeepAliveRequests directive). This module allows you to limit the maximum number of keep alive requests to a server.
