Manages persistent connections using Net::HTTP


This package provides persistent connections to Net::HTTP.

Creating a new HTTP connection for every request involves an extra TCP round-trip and causes TCP congestion avoidance negotiation to start over. Using persistent HTTP connections can dramatically increase the speed of HTTP.

Net::HTTP supports persistent connections with some API methods but does not handle reconnection gracefully. Net::HTTP::Persistent supports reconnection and retry according to RFC 2616.
