Configuration Details:

Option Name:client_lifetime
Replaces:
Requires:
Default Value:client_lifetime 1 day
Suggested Config:

	The maximum amount of time a client (browser) is allowed to
	remain connected to the cache process.  This protects the Cache
	from having a lot of sockets (and hence file descriptors) tied up
	in a CLOSE_WAIT state from remote clients that go away without
	properly shutting down (either because of a network failure or
	because of a poor client implementation).  The default is one
	day, 1440 minutes.

	NOTE:  The default value is intended to be much larger than any
	client would ever need to be connected to your cache.  You
	should probably change client_lifetime only as a last resort.
	If you seem to have many client connections tying up
	filedescriptors, we recommend first tuning the read_timeout,
	request_timeout, persistent_request_timeout and quick_abort values.
