NAME ^

HTTP::Proxy::Engine::Legacy - The "older" HTTP::Proxy engine

SYNOPSIS ^

    my $proxy = HTTP::Proxy->new( engine => 'Legacy' );

DESCRIPTION ^

This engine reproduces the older child creation algorithm of HTTP::Proxy.

Angelos Karageorgiou <angelos@unix.gr> reports:

I got the Legacy engine to work really fast under Win32 with the following trick:

    max_keep_alive_requests(1);
    max_clients(120);
    $HTTP::VERSION(1.0); # just in case

and it smokes.

It seems that forked children are really slow when calling select for handling keep-alived requests!

METHODS ^

The module defines the following methods, used by HTTP::Proxy main loop:

start()

Initialise the engine.

run()

Implements the forking logic: a new process is forked for each new incoming TCP connection.

stop()

Reap remaining child processes.

The following method is used by the engine internally:

reap_zombies()

Process the dead child processes.

SEE ALSO ^
