Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apr_bucket_read() failed when uploading files
Date Mon, 22 Jun 2009 17:33:22 GMT
Just as info, in case there is any doubt : our application uses perl 
cgi-bin scripts, themselves using, to process POSTed html form 
data, including files.  Some of these files are original documents 
(images, PDFs, etc..) up to 30 MB in size.
We do this all the time, have done it for years, on a variety of 
platforms and Apache2/perl5/ versions, and have never seen it fail 
(except when there is a real network problem or the client cancels in 
the middle).
This is not to say that it can't happen, but merely to say that at the 
very least it is not a common problem at the Apache2/perl5/ level.

"Connection reset by peer", in my experience, means just that : the 
client went away before it sent all the data (or something between the 
client and the server interrupted the connection).
The second part of the message (ap_content_length_filter) tends to 
suggest that there may be a discrepancy between what the client says the 
content length is, and what it is in reality..

How exactly is this data being POSTed by the browser ?  via a standard 
POST of an html <form>, or via some Ajax/javascript/java code or the like ?
