I'm connecting Apache to Tomcat using mod_jk. There is many timeout settings. I couldn't get difference of socket_timeout and request_timeout. It seems to me no need to use request_timeout if we are using socket_timeout. Will any issue occur, if I omit request_timeout? Any clarification and best practices would be very appreciated.
