= net-http-persistent

* http://docs.seattlerb.org/net-http-persistent
* https://github.com/drbrain/net-http-persistent

== DESCRIPTION:

Manages persistent connections using Net::HTTP plus a speed fix for Ruby 1.8.
It's thread-safe too!

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

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.

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

* Supports SSL
* Thread-safe
* Pure ruby
* Timeout-less speed boost for Ruby 1.8 (by Aaron Patterson)

== INSTALL:

  gem install net-http-persistent
