           Summary: Incorrect transfer streamed volumes are logged
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.52
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: All
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: sambukkaa@hotmail.com


First of all, please excuse me that I have to report the problem here, since it 
is not a bug. It is simply things that recently became very important but have 
still no solution.
Please take your time and read this till the end. It is very hart for me to 
explain it and Iím sure that it would also not be easy  to understand.
Apache shows wrong upload transfer volumes.
Why? 
Immediately after starting a download for example, the size of the downloaded 
file with all other information are saved in as a line  in the log file.
Since there is no way to verify if the user didnít disconnect or stopped the 
download, it is by all server developers assumed that this way of logging the 
traffic is the best and the only way.
It is also assumed that the error tolerance would be low because it would not 
often be the case.

Recently, the internet connections became fast enough to stream films or music.
>From the server point of view, the streamed files are logged as downloads 
registering the full size of the file.
The streaming companies are interested to be able to close a streaming thread 
after a definite time. 
No server offers this possibility including Apache. 
There are many possibilities to stop or close the client browser with java or 
javascript.
Apache could offer this option by:
1) Recognizing files as streamed files and not logging the full size of the 
download. (doesnít exist)
2) A function to close a thread (either through different port number for 
example )
3)When closed, logging the transferred bit size.

I have a site streaming movies with Apache and I can tell you that beside those 
problems it is the best server in the world.
I have log files showing me a transfer rate of 200 GB a day but in reality was 
actually 2 GB.
