Status code 000 in the logs

What does status code 000 mean in the Nginx logs? I have the following
in
the config:

    location  =  /get-img.pl
    {
        limit_req  zone=slow  burst=10;
        proxy_pass  http://service_perl;
    }

get-img.pl generates an image, writes it to disk and then returns
“X-Accel-Redirect” to the image. Everything seems to be working just
fine, I
see delayed responses because of limit_req in the logs (with code 200).
Sometimes there are responses with code 503 for “greedy” clients that
exceed
the burst=10 parameter. All as expected.

However, occasionally I see a bunch of requests (around 5 to 20 within a
few
seconds of each other) with status code 000 and 0 for the body size in
the
logs. They are always from the same IP address for the entire bunch, so
I’m
guessing it’s requests that already went through internal
“X-Accel-Redirect”
redirect and then something happened. Connection aborted? Something
else?
Why not status code 503? That’s where you come in with a helpful
explanation. :slight_smile:

It happens if client closes connection whily waiting for limit_req
delay, and correct code to log is 499 (client closed request).
This is already fixed in 1.5.3 with the following commit:
