Unicorn is a HTTP server for Rack applications designed to take
advantage of features in Unix/Unix-like kernels and only serve fast
clients on low-latency, high-bandwidth connections. Slow clients should
only be served by placing a reverse proxy capable of fully-buffering
both the the request and response in between Unicorn and slow clients.
Thanks to Chris W. for reporting issues with large
POST bodies and for helping me test.
Avoid truncated POST bodies with URL-encoded forms in Rails
by switching TeeInput to use read-in-full semantics (only) when
a Content-Length: header exists. Chunked request bodies
continue to exhibit readpartial semantics to support
simultaneous bidirectional chunking.
The lack of return value checking in Rails to protect against a
short ios.read(length) is entirely reasonable even if not
pedantically correct. Most ios.read(length) implementations
return the full amount requested except right before EOF.
A ticket has been opened here to track the issue:
Also there are some minor documentation improvements.
