HTTP::Proxy::Engine::Legacy - The "older" HTTP::Proxy engine
my $proxy = HTTP::Proxy->new( engine => 'Legacy' );
This engine reproduces the older child creation algorithm of HTTP::Proxy.
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
The module defines the following methods, used by HTTP::Proxy main loop:
Initialise the engine.
Implements the forking logic: a new process is forked for each new incoming TCP connection.
Reap remaining child processes.
The following method is used by the engine internally:
Process the dead child processes.
