Subject: [PATCH 2/3] test/benchmark/readinput: demo for slowly uploading clients
Date: Sun, 12 May 2019 22:25:46 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20190512222547.17542-3-e@80x24.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190512222547.17542-1-e@80x24.org>

This is intended to demonstrate how badly we suck at dealing
with slow clients making uploads.  It can help users evaluate
alternative fully-buffering reverse proxies, because nginx
should not be the only option.

+  unicorn -E none -l test/benchmark/readinput.ru
+  # in a different terminal, upload 45M from multiple curl processes:

+# The last client won't see a response until the first one is done uploading
+# You also won't be able to make GET requests to view this documentation
+# while clients are uploading.  You can also view the stderr debug output
+# of unicorn (see logging code in #{__FILE__}).
