The srcache_store thing does not send the response data piece by
piece. It always buffers the whole response. So if it does not see the
(explicit) end of the output stream, it will just throw away the
buffered data and does not touch the cache at all.
Do you mean that your backend server can send extra data than the size
specified by its Content-Length response header?

Okay, if ngx_proxy cannot detect the connection abortion errors here,
then ngx_srcache cannot know either. I think we should fix ngx_proxy
in the first place rather than doing work-around on the ngx_srcache
But anyway, ngx_srcache can do a double-check on the data size if a
Content-Length response header is present. Do you have the tuits to
contribute a patch for ngx_srcache?
