Subject [Bug 58873] New: Chunked encoding, Content Length and mod_deflate
Date Fri, 15 Jan 2016 20:00:46 GMT

            Bug ID: 58873
           Summary: Chunked encoding, Content Length and mod_deflate
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.5-HEAD
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Mac OS X 10.1
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
          Assignee: docs@httpd.apache.org
          Reporter: toscano.luca@gmail.com

From:

http://serverfault.com/questions/183843/content-length-not-sent-when-gzip-compression-enabled-in-apache

"Apache uses chunked encoding only if the compressed file size is larger than
the DeflateBufferSize. Increasing this buffer size will therefore prevent the
server using chunked encoding also for larger files, causing the Content-Length
to be sent even for zipped data."

This piece of information is very useful especially when Apache is upstream for
Varnish (or similar), because the absence of Content Length can cause headaches
and small issues in production (content not cached).

Would it be useful to add this info to
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/mod_deflate.html ?
