I think your new mod_proxy_fcgi.c did it and my testing was incorrect. I
think we can go into weekend...

currently i compare features and behaviour of proxy_fcgi to
classical methods like mod_fastcgi/mod_php.
mod_php/fastcgi have options to send every output from
backend immediately to client. So it is possible to see
progressing output in browser and not complete websiteoutput
Here is an example script:
if you ran this with php-cli or adjusted mod_php/mod_fastcgi
you see progress in browser and numbers 0 1 2 appear one
If you run this with proxy_fcgi you will see no progress,
but complete output at once.
mod_proxy knows about worker parameter flushpackets, but the
docs say this is in effect only for AJP. I can confirm that
this and related options have no effect.
There are some workarounds posted in the web, but only one
worked for me. If i add following line to the script, i also
see a progress with proxy_fcgi in browser:
Somebody knows a working workaround which works without
scriptediting? some workarounds tell about using "SetEnv
no-gzip 1". This was not working for me and iam not please
to disable content-compression.
Is it planned to support >>flushpackets<< also to proxy_fcgi?
May be this is not important for typical website but some
The functionality is committed to trunk but never backported to
2.4.x because I was not sure about its importance, it looks like
some users might benefit from it :)
The trunk patch is http://svn.apache.org/r1802040
<http://svn.apache.org/r1802040>, it should apply to 2.4.x if
you want to test it and give me some feedback.
I tried this and it works great. I see same behaviour as expected
with other methods. I think some users might benefit from this. I
saw some discussion related to this topic and people just ended
up by ungainly workaround.
Unfortunately i spoke too soon. I was too euphoric when reading
your answer ;)
Behaviour is definitively more then expected, but it seems there
is still a minimum-limit for the buffer to flush. I suppose this
limit is 4096 bytes.
you can comprehend this with pastebinexample above.
Change line 2 from "$string_length = 14096;" to "$string_length =
When calling this php-file you will see no progress. All output
appears at once.
Change scriptline to "$string_length = 1332;", you will see at
least 2 steps of output, because first step seems to break this
4096 bufferlimit. increasing $string_length more and more results
in more steps of output.
So current mod_proxy_fcgi.c from svn with configured
"flushpackets=On" seems to work exaktly like "flushpackets=auto
setting iobuffersize to lower numbers has no effect.
What do you think? Is there still a hard-coded limit or do i have
a problem in my configuration?
I would be really glad, if you could take a look at this issue.
I am far from being an expert in PHP, but I added "ob_flush();" right
before "flush()" in your script and the 1331 use case seems flushing
correctly. Do you mind to check and let me know what do you get on
your testing environment? As far as I can see in the mod_proxy_fcgi's
code the iobuffersize variable is taken into account..
