Subject Re: ProxyTimeout Revisited
Date Fri, 15 Jun 2007 17:51:55 GMT
As I understand mod_proxy_* and APR code, the BalancerManager timeout 
will set a timeout for individual read and write attempts to backend 

So it neither correlates to an idle timeout on the connection (see ttl 
and smax) neither to a request timeout in the sense of a limit to the 
full request handling time.

The timeout starts whenever something is expected to get read or 
written. So most of the times it should fire, when retrieving the 
initial response packets takes longer than this timeout, or your backend 
starts to hang in the middle of request processing.
