Subject millisecond timeouts in mod_proxy & mod_proxy_http
Date Fri, 14 Jan 2011 20:30:04 GMT
Apache committers:

I'd like to submit this for possible inclusion in Apache httpd

- allows millisecond timeouts for ProxyPass/ProxyTimeout directives
- allows millisecond timeouts for RewriteRule driven proxy
- extends RewriteRules to implement a custom error document or return
status per rule if timeout occurs

Complete README here:

We've been using both patches at the Rubicon Project for 18 months in
one case and 6 in other.  Handling billions of HTTP requests per day
(yes really).

Hat tip to Ronald Park who paved the way for this with similar work in
httpd 2.0.x patches.

Thanks - Neal Richter
