Subject apache strange behaviour for https and usage of 3d party module.
Date Mon, 15 Feb 2010 18:30:50 GMT

There is production server using 3d party module which implement gate 
from web to database runtime engine
(Intersystems cache).

There are different implementation

1st using apache module api
2nd using cgi interface nph-CSPcgi

The problem usage
ap_get_brigade() returns occasionally status

70014 APR_EOF

for the only one url POST /csp/shanscsp/PPS/%25CSP.Broker.cls HTTP/1.1
and https protocol.

these errors result in impossible production site usage.

In order to avoid influence 3dparty module to apache and separate 
address space apache and 3d party module
I tried cgi version of the module. has similar idiom to read data from apache as mod_cgi.c
beside it reports ap_get_failure() (currenlty it has been modified and 
it reports error
in special log of module)

mod_cgi.c reports ap_get_brigade() failure with the same sets of error 
(104, 70007, 70014).

     bb = apr_brigade_create(r->pool, c->bucket_alloc);
     seen_eos = 0;
     child_stopped_reading = 0;
     if (conf->logname) {
         dbuf = apr_palloc(r->pool, conf->bufbytes + 1);
         dbpos = 0;
     do {
         apr_bucket *bucket;

         rv = ap_get_brigade(r->input_filters, bb, AP_MODE_READBYTES,
                             APR_BLOCK_READ, HUGE_STRING_LEN);

         if (rv != APR_SUCCESS) {
             ap_log_rerror(APLOG_MARK, APLOG_ERR, rv, r,
                           "Error reading request entity data");
             return HTTP_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR;

url are different, protocol https.

I have one ~400mb error_ssl_log with level LogLevel debug
(it was set during less than one hour at time of low server payload)
and it has messages with ap_status

104 also would appear if apache config would work longer.
it did appear - apache worked longer in cgi config and  log_level was warn.
Generally nph-CSPcgi config was less stable as - config was 
switched to use back.

The problem is reproduced for httpd of rhel5.0  (httpd-2.2.3-31.el5_4.2)
and for 2.2.14 built from the source.

How to deal with issue further?

Is it apache bug or ... real network error.

Thank in advance.
