read() on inotify fd does not return partial records,
and the info from the kernel can be trusted. Still add a sanity check.
If initialization of inotify fails, server will subsequently exit,
so memory leak reported by coverity is insignificant.
more consistent use of shared code config_plugin_value_tobool()
"The on/off keywords in boolean configuration options is inconsistent, which might be misleading and error-prone."
Note: there have always been limitations with lighttpd stat_cache.[ch]
using FAM/gamin on *BSD via kqueue() as lighttpd stat_cache.[ch] only
monitors directories. This kqueue() implementation also only monitors
directories and has limitations.
lighttpd stat_cache.[ch] is notified about additions and removals of
files within a monitored directory but might not be notified of changes
such as timestamps (touch), ownership, or even changes in contents
(e.g. if a file is edited through a hard link)
server.stat-cache-engine = "disable" should be used when files should
not be cached. Full stop. Similarly, "disable" is recommended if files
change frequently. If using server.stat-cache-engine with any engine,
there are caching effects and tradeoffs.
On *BSD and using kqueue() on directories, any change detected clears
the stat_cache of all entries in that directory, since monitoring only
the directory does not indicate which file was added or removed. This
is not efficient for directories containing frequently changed files.
simple interface to cache open file by extending struct stat_cache_entry
future: should probably create fd cache separate from stat_cache,
perhaps along w/ http-specific fields like etag and content_type
auth.cache = ("max-age" => "600")
vhostdb.cache = ("max-age" => "600")
If specified with an empty array, default max-age is 600 secs (10 mins)
auth.cache = ()
vhostdb.cache = ()
(Note: cache expiration occurs every 8 seconds, so maximum cache time
might be up to max-age + 8 seconds)
(expansion of buffer_string_lenth() inline function and CONST_BUF_LEN()
macro, which always check for NULL, appears to cause the analyzer to
believe that a pointer might be NULL in cases where it otherwise can
not be NULL)
NB: r->tmp_buf == srv->tmp_buf (pointer is copied for quicker access)
NB: request read and write chunkqueues currently point to connection
chunkqueues; per-request and per-connection chunkqueues are
not distinct from one another
con->read_queue == r->read_queue
con->write_queue == r->write_queue
NB: in the future, a separate connection config may be needed for
connection-level module hooks. Similarly, might need to have
per-request chunkqueues separate from per-connection chunkqueues.
Should probably also have a request_reset() which is distinct from
convert all log_error_write() to log_error() and pass (log_error_st *)
use con->errh in preference to srv->errh (even though currently same)
avoid passing (server *) when previously used only for logging (errh)
