Subject clogging filters and async MPMs
Date Thu, 04 Feb 2010 14:14:41 GMT
Hi,

I'm reading through the httpd code and I notice that async MPMs will fall
back to sync mode in the presence of clogging input filters (at least I
think I've got that right).

I understand that mod_ssl is a clogging filter.

What does it mean to be a "clogging filter"? How does this break async MPMs?
What would it take to make mod_ssl a non-clogging filter?

Thanks,
Bryan
