For example, though the default of KeepAliveTimeout in Apache2.2 is 5s, we modify it to 301s or 302s for your Akamai's recommendation.
The higher the timeout, the more server processes will be kept occupied waiting on connections with idle clients.
So, I think that MaxClients or ServerLimit should also be increased when modified KeepAliveTimeout long.
<Ex: the default of Apache2.2>
MaxClients number 256
As it relates to the number of Edge servers more than 256, is there a recommended value for these parameters?
Please let me know if you know recommended values.
