Subject [users@httpd] Status page: reading state
Date Tue, 06 Feb 2007 09:25:50 GMT

This will seem like an obsession for me, but I have more questions about
the status page.
I'm running Apache 2.0.58 on Solaris 5.9, as a reverse proxy. [ This
last point is probably key ]
I thought the "..reading.." state meant "I'm reading client request http
It seems it's not, or at least not when working as a proxy.

I've built up a simple configuration:
Client => Apache Reverse Proxy => Web Server with a page that waits 10

As expected, when accessing the web server through the reverse proxy, a
connection is held for 10 min.
What I find really surprising is that the connection stays in the
"..reading.." state for 10 min!!! The client IP and requested URL only
appears on the status page when the response has been sent to the

Another test makes me think that this works "as expected" in a
"non-proxy" mode: the URL appears as soon as the request is handled.

Do you think this is normal? Is there a way to change this behaviour?
