Subject Random HTTP 502 errors
Date Tue, 18 Jul 2006 21:04:13 GMT
I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on some strange 502 errors I
am having when going through a proxy.  We are using a relatively new proxy
server Sun-Java-System-Web-Proxy-Server/4.0

The error seems to be originating between Tomcat and the proxy.  When the
error occurs, the proxy logs say:
Error reading response header.  Server closed connection.

On a thousand rapid requests from a client thread, I will get this only 0 -
3 times.

If I send the response header "Connection: close" on every request from my
servlet, I do not get the error.  However, I do not want to disable
persistent connections.

I did a snoop, and I noticed that the responses I get (on the same socket) a
bunch of replies with this header:

	HTTP/1.1 200 OK 
	Transfer-Encoding: chunked 
	Date: Tue, 18 Jul 2006 19:35:12 GMT 
	Server: Apache-Coyote/1.1

On the last one for a given socket,
	HTTP/1.1 200 OK 
	Date: Tue, 18 Jul 2006 19:35:12 GMT 
	Server: Apache-Coyote/1.1 
	Connection: close

Any guidance or insight would be greatly appreciated.
