Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 49382] ab says "SSL read failed"
Date Wed, 07 Mar 2012 20:37:40 GMT

Upon further testing, I've found some sites this still doesn't work on.

In particular, I've verified that ab will now work fine with -n1 against and, but will fail with -n2
or higher. The failure modes seem slightly different but both Google and
Facebook "cheat" in various ways for performance (such as defeating slow-start)
so I'm not too surprised this fails on those two. (Other Google properties,
such as, work fine.)

In testing against most sites I monitor in production it works fine. This
represents a mix of Apache, IIS, nginx, and F5 BigIP HTTPS servers.

I have found one Tomcat 5.5 that fails, unfortunately this may be exposing a
serious error. The first request resolves with a 200, then subsequent requests
seem to be continuing the data flow from that first request and interpreting it
as a 500. Note that the function (this was with -v2, the failure happens in a
part of the page that has JavaScript so that's just page data) is cut off in
the middle by a 500 response code. Not sure what's going on.

function popWindowSecure(url,winnam
