If the connection is suspended and cases of:
a. client closes the connection before response is sent.
b. server app doesn't respond at all post suspend.
both cases there is no notification by MHD even if connection timeout is specified and notify callback. How can these cases be handled ?

Just to add more, my application is single threaded and I am running MHD inside that. I don't create additional threads. I use suspend and resume as suggested earlier as I do async processing.

So, I am thinking how can we implement flow control in this scenario..

Thanks, Santos

Could you kindly let me know how can we implement the flow control ? Protection against the badly behaving clients.

HTTP/1.1 servers SHOULD maintain persistent connections and use TCP's flow control 
mechanisms to resolve temporary overloads, rather than terminating connections with 
the expectation that clients will retry. The latter technique can exacerbate network
