I’ve recently upgraded one of the nginx servers within a caching
(proxy_cache module) cluster from 1.8.1 to 1.10 and soon after I noticed
unusually high number of various errors only on that server which I
eventually pin pointed to a mismatch between the actual cached file size
disk and size reported in file metadata (either content-length or
else). Apparently, cached files on 1.10 are cut short and miss up to few
hundred kilobytes at their ends (for files over 100 MB in total size).
few files I checked, the larger file was, more content it missed at the
Eventually I found the culprit to be aio_write which I enabled the same
I upgraded nginx. Disabling it and removing all already cached files
resolved the problem.
