The “proxy_buffering off” implies that response will not be
buffered - that is, everything received from a backend is
immediately sent to a client.
At least one buffer is still required though (nginx have to store
data from a backend somewhere before it will be able to send them
to a client), and proxy_buffer_size defines size of this buffer.
See http://nginx.org/r/proxy_buffering for details.
I had been seeing truncated responses of files which went away
when I increased proxy_buffer_size even though proxy_buffering
was turned off. I am running nginx1.5.8. Is this expected
No, it’s not.
First of all, I would recommend you to take a look into error
logs - it might have an answer.
If it doesn’t help, some more debugging hints can be found at
