Description

I set up lighttpd 1.4.19 as a proxy for backend servers ...
main problem is when i try to download a large file from the backend servers which is not in lighttpd cache .thus the file has to get all the way into lighty before anything sent back to the client request.. suppose am downloading a 1GB file from one of my upstream backend servers then it has to be stored and finished into lighttpd's cache first before anything served and sent to the client download manager ....

I use Ubuntu 8.04 with lighttpd 1.4.19

Regards

You are wrong. The file is sent back to the client as fast as possible, it only caches the whole response as fast as possible which is going to result in a out of memory problem if you transfer 1GB files (known problem).

Just don't proxy big static files through lighty without x-sendfile. Or use a real proxy instead.

If you are talking about the 3rd party module mod_cache: sry, there are sometimes reason why a module is not included upstream.
