Memory leak in outgoing https connections

July 21, 2011 12:44PM

I believe, there is a memory leak in nginx somewhere in handling outgoing HTTPS connections. I am using it as a simple http-to-https proxy. My configuration is the following:

server {
server_name localhost;
access_log off;
location / {
proxy_pass $http_x_proxy_url;

When I try to run something like:
bash -c "while :; do curl -H 'X-Proxy-Url: https://any-https-site.tld/' http://localhost:81/; done"

I see nginx eating more and more memory with each request.

I used the latest stable version and compiled it from source on Debian Lenny x64:
root@debian-amd64:/usr/local/nginx/sbin# ./nginx -V
nginx: nginx version: nginx/1.0.5
nginx: built by gcc 4.3.4 (Debian 4.3.4-6~bpo50+1)
nginx: TLS SNI support enabled
nginx: configure arguments: --with-debug --with-http_stub_status_module --with-http_flv_module --with-http_ssl_module --with-http_dav_module
