nginx http/1.1 upstream server
October 15, 2009 11:16AM
I'm trying to use nginx as a loadbalancer for a large number of tomcat servers. The application running on the tomcat servers works that a flash client are requesting a connection which then are used to push information to the flash clients.

The problem seems to be that nginx are accepting the connection http/1.1 connection but then somehow converts it into a http/1.0 connection against the upstream tomcat servers which causes the connection to fail and no data are pushed.

I wonder if this i a normal behavior and if there are any type of workarounds for this?

The application are built on blazeds if that may help.

There a cut from my configuration:

[code]
worker_processes 4;

error_log logs/error.log;

events {
worker_connections 8196;
}


http {
include mime.types;
default_type application/octet-stream;

log_format main '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] $request '
'"$status" $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" '
'"$http_user_agent" "$http_x_forwarded_for"';

sendfile on;
keepalive_timeout 75 20;

gzip on;
gzip_min_length 1100;
gzip_buffers 4 8k;
gzip_types text/plain;

Currently nginx only supports http/1.1 connection with client. Backend connections are http/1.0. See http://wiki.nginx.org/NginxHttpProxyModule.

Thanks for your fast answer!

I've unfortunately not been too involved in the nginx development so I don't know if there's any special reason to not implement this functionality?

My wonder are anyway if this are a function that's planned soon or if I've to search for other solutions which are sin since I'm very pleased with the functionality of nginx on php sites I already use it for.

I know that it is planned but I don't believe that a public timeline exists. Maxim Dounin has done some work on module for upstream keepalive at http://mdounin.ru/hg/ but I don't know how well it's been tested in production.
