2.4.4. Clock tick

Not all HTTP requests can be completely resolved by the initial call to the function http_connection(). For example, a GET on a file larger than the TCP/IP window size may block, because large files might not fit into the available socket buffers. Therefore, the server needs to periodically get some CPU cycles to perform individual blocks of work, each block involving the transfer of a smaller, manageable part of the overall file. The final block of work involves cleaning up when the request has been completed.
