Subject [users@httpd] Apache returns 200 to client in case of proxy timeout
Date Wed, 15 Jun 2011 06:52:08 GMT

We're using Apache 2.2.15, with mod_proxy_http for proxying requests to backend processes.

Here's the relevant configuration we use:

  <ProxyMatch  http://localhost:9001>
    ProxySet smax=5 max=20 ttl=120 keepalive=On

Hence, the value of "timeout" is 300 seconds. When the timeout occurs, we see Apache returning
200 to the client (just changed the URL):

1181: - - [11/Jun/2011:10:58:53 +0100] "POST /x/y/z HTTP/1.1" 200 - 300515625

Is that the expected behavior? I would expect an error code, maybe 504.
