I want to make sure that when nginx's DAV module responds with an OK for
a PUT (or COPY) request, the file is committed on disk.
I see the following solutions:
1. set the filesystem to be sync (for example zfs sync=always)
2. LD_PRELOAD a lib to nginx, which does an fsync before the close() call
3. introduce a dav_fsync on option
4. add a query parameter (or a header), which can be used to signal that
the client wants the file to be fsync()-ed
#1 is the worst performance wise, #2 is easy, but seems a little bit
A quick glance to the source code tells me that implementing #3 could be
as easy to call an fsync() at the end of ngx_http_dav_put_handler(),
r->headers_out.status = status;
r->header_only = 1;
Of course this blocks, which may badly hurt nginx performance.
What is your opinion on this? How this should be handled?
