With your (exact) code sample, I cannot see any issues with
ngx_openresty on Linux x86_64.

For a *single* request to location / (note: not multiple!), I'm
getting 26 non-empty data chunks:

    $ grep 'The body is' logs/error.log | wc -l

and also one empty data chunk (which is generated by ngx_proxy to
solely signal the end of the body):

    $ grep 'has empty body' logs/error.log | wc -l

You can try to scan your error.log on your side.

For big enough response bodies, it's common to see multiple data
chunks emitted by ngx_proxy to the output body filter chain. And your
body_filter_by_lua handler will be called multiple times, one time for
one data chunk, for a *single* response.

BTW, please post such questions to the openresty-en mailing list
( ) instead so that I can
see your mails sooner rather than later :)

Best regards,
