As says:

HTTP/1.1 defines the "close" connection option for the sender to signal that the connection will be closed after completion of the response.

But it does not specify the connection should be closed by client or server, for safety, if Connection: close
is set in response header, server should close the connection after write data. Recently we have been
affect by this issue: we write a lots of data to client, but the client does not close the connection(
keep-alive is set by default in HTTP/1.1), so memory is still hold by response, and memory is used up.

Message from Gobot Gobot:

Patch Set 1:

Congratulations on opening your first change. Thank you for your contribution!

Next steps:
Within the next week or so, a maintainer will review your change and provide
feedback. See for more info and
tips to get your patch through code review.

Most changes in the Go project go through a few rounds of revision. This can be
surprising to people new to the project. The careful, iterative review process
is our way of helping mentor contributors and ensuring that their contributions
have a lasting impact.

During May-July and Nov-Jan the Go project is in a code freeze, during which
little code gets reviewed or merged. If a reviewer responds with a comment like
R=go1.11, it means that this CL will be reviewed as part of the next development
cycle. See for more details.

After addressing review feedback, remember to publish your drafts!
