Ok changed the the lua implementation a little, still seeing 'different'
images/colors appear when requesting the page repeatedly with a single
browser though.. Assuming the 'penguinsimage' content doesnt change nor
move in memory,, i suspect that somehow the txn.res:send is somehow
subject to random buffer content overwriting..
local f = io.open("/var/etc/haproxy/Penguins.jpg", "rb")
penguinsimage = f:read("*all")

I'm sure i am abusing lua for completely wrong thing here.
But i do not understand why the result isn't at least consistent..
Ive got a Pinguïns.jpg of 759kB (Default Windows 7 example image)..
And have the configuration listed below.
When requesting the image from a browser the top of the image looks
normal, but further down it starts morphing, or becomes complete garbage..
Increasing bufsize to 300000 makes the image show normal when reading
and writing the whole image in 1 variable.. Though the buffer is still
less than half of the image size.?.
What im wondering though is how can it be that the results with smaller
bufsizes vary..?? Is it overflowing some memory? With 1.6dev1 it would
crash after a few requests, dev2 seems to have fixed that.. Though the
random behavior is still strange.. I would expect every time the same
image is send it to be cut short at buffsize, or perhaps just work if
lua might use its own memory buffers not limited to haproxy's buffsize?
Is it a bug? Or just a wrong lua script?
Should files / sockets be closed by the script? I get an error if i
do..(attempt to use a closed file)
Hi, thank you for the repport. I'm currently trying to reproduce it,
I'm not finished.
I see two errors in your code:
First, "io.*" are "real" blocking functions. HAProxy is really
blocked waiting for the data access. It is a very bad to use it.
However, how that you write for the file acces should work.
Second, your variable "f" is not declared as local. This variable is
keep between two requests. Maybe is the reason of your problem.
To serve static file with Lua, the best practice is loading the full
file during the initialisation and store it into a global variable.
During the runtime, you will use only the variable and not the file.
# tune.bufsize 300000
tcp-request content lua hello_image
txn.res:send("HTTP/1.1 200 OK\n\n")
f = io.open("/var/etc/haproxy/Penguins.jpg", "rb")
local block = 5000
while true do
local bytes = f:read(block)
if not bytes then break end
--core.msleep(25); ## changes behavior to be somewhat more
--f:close() ## [ALERT] 168/232309 (74397) : Lua function
