[erlang-questions] Heavy duty erlang HTTP/REST client

Hi all,

I've been struggling with httpc and ibrowse to do sort of long-polling REST
requests in large numbers. Basically I have a "slow" server that responds
in 30-60 seconds to all HTTP requests. Both httpc and ibrowse seem to
freeze at some point no matter what settings I use - I set max sessions to
10000, disable pipelining, adjust timeouts tried several random configs,
but at some point they all freeze and no longer attempt to connect and send
new requests. Ibrowse gives the retry_later and httpc just freezes. Any
recommendation?
