Resumable uploads with upload module

June 02, 2011 02:26PM
Hi, I haven't found a lot of information on what would seem to me a very interesting and useful feature: the upload modules upload_resumable directive and how to implement a client that supports the protocol stated here: http://www.grid.net.ru/nginx/resumable_uploads.en.html

Two questions to the developers or people using it:

1. What kind of control (if any) do we have on how the resumable uploads are handled, particularly I wonder how long a partial upload is held by nginx and if that can be configured: Say I upload the first chunk and then never upload the rest (a crash, internet failure etc), is the first chunk kept in memory/disk for ever?

2. My current processes do multipart/form-data POST to nginx to be handled by a django backend. I upload a file and the form data with metadata pertaining to that file. The protocol clearly states that multipart/form-data content dispositions are now allowed. Is there someway around this? I need to upload metadata along with the file upload to determine what to do with the file.
