Range + If-Range requests not working with proxy cache hits

December 21, 2015 09:39AM

I'm using proxy_cache module and I noticed nginx replies with whole response and 200 OK status on requests such as this and for content that is already in cache:

User-Agent: curl/7.26.0
Accept: */*
If-Range: Thu, 26 Nov 2015 13:48:46 GMT

However, If I remove the "If-Range" request header, I get the correct content range in return.
I enabled debug logging and was focused on this part of the code:

0207 if_range_time = ngx_parse_http_time(if_range->data, if_range->len);
0209 ngx_log_debug2(NGX_LOG_DEBUG_HTTP, r->connection->log, 0,
0210 "http ir:%d lm:%d",
0211 if_range_time, r->headers_out.last_modified_time);
0213 if (if_range_time != r->headers_out.last_modified_time) {
0214 goto next_filter;
0215 }

which I found to output:

2015/12/21 12:55:18 [debug] 13727#13727: *716934 http ir:1448545726 lm:0

As well as:
$ head -20 /home/disk2/cache/e2/9a/611e43135479fdcc9e8eb5e507349ae2|grep -a Last

Given the info above, I'm confused about the "lm:0". How come is it 0 when in both cached file header and in the final response correctly set Last-Modified value. Am I missing something, do you know what might be causing this? Nginx is 1.8, proxy_force_ranges is unset and proxy_set_header doesn't contain any relevant values. It doesn't seem to be a big issue as adding Etag appears to help, but just wondering if you have any idea?
