Premature POST Timeout

           Summary: Premature POST Timeout
           Product: Apache httpd-1.3
           Version: 1.3.26
          Platform: Other
               URL: http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/core.html#timeout
        OS/Version: AIX
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Blocker
          Priority: Other
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: david.chen@gems3.gov.bc.ca


According to the documentation, the TimeOut directive currently defines the 
amount of time Apache will wait for three things:

- The total amount of time it takes to receive a GET request. 
- The amount of time between receipt of TCP packets on a POST or PUT request. 
- The amount of time between ACKs on transmissions of TCP packets in responses. 

We have several apache HTTP servers (IBM HTTP Servers based on Apache) running 
on AIX.  When sending files to the server using RFC1867 multi-part post method, 
the upload is terminated when the overall upload time is longer than the value 
set in the timeout directive.  I believe this is an incorrect behavior.  
According to the documentation (see above), I believe that the upload should 
only be terminated if the time-between-packets is longer than the timeout 
value.  This has a great impact on our web applications as we expect our users 
to upload large files.
