Re: What is TUX? (Was Re: A heads up)



from experience, tux WILL NOT serve 100% of static content, if the request
is malformed enough. As one who DID add features to tux, i know how the http
parsing code is done, so please believe me when i say that.

if you don't believe me, please setup a tux with a backend server, setup the
keepalives as you believe is correct, and check your backend logs from time
to time. the most clear example of request that will probably be passed to
the backend are request from some windows download manager software, that
introduce complex http range queries, and there are dosens of other cases
that tux will pass to the backend. having said that, on my web server tux
does handle about 99.9% of static requests. if you don't care about the 0.1%
that remains, then do as you see fit.
