Subject [Bug 55646] New: non-2xx responses are not considered errors

https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=55646

            Bug ID: 55646
           Summary: non-2xx responses are not considered errors
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.5-HEAD
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: support
          Assignee: bugs@httpd.apache.org
          Reporter: chris+apache@aptivate.org

$ ab -X localhost:3128 -n 10 -c 3 http://www.mirrorservice.org/

Benchmarking www.mirrorservice.org [through localhost:3128] (be
patient).....done


Server Software:        squid/3.1.19
Server Hostname:        www.mirrorservice.org
Server Port:            80

Document Path:          /
Document Length:        3140 bytes

Concurrency Level:      3
Time taken for tests:   0.165 seconds
Complete requests:      10
Failed requests:        2
   (Connect: 0, Receive: 0, Length: 2, Exceptions: 0)
Write errors:           0
Non-2xx responses:      8
Total transferred:      34998 bytes
HTML transferred:       31566 bytes
Requests per second:    60.66 [#/sec] (mean)
Time per request:       49.458 [ms] (mean)
Time per request:       16.486 [ms] (mean, across all concurrent requests)
Transfer rate:          207.31 [Kbytes/sec] received

The "non-2xx responses" in this case are 403 errors from the proxy. I'm very
surprised that these aren't considered "Failed requests", while a 200 OK
response with a different length is considered "failed". Other people are
surprised by this too:

* https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=42040

Please would you consider changing this, so that non-2xx responses are errors
but different length responses are not? (or at least optionally so.)

I know that issue #42040 and friends are about adding a flag which makes
different length responses be not considered as errors; I think this should be
on by default, and the option should be to turn it off and require all
responses to be the same length. Thanks!
