Well, I turned off sendfile in config. I also changed a bunch of parameters per an email I received from Dave Cheney (thanks Dave!). No luck.<br><br>Just for laughs, I installed and configured Swiftiply with Mongrel and turned off Nginx. Same issue.
<br><br>So, then I turned off Swiftiply also and started just one mongrel and told it to listen on port 80. It worked great. File uploads were much faster.<br><br>So, if I am having the same issue when proxying from either Swiftiply or Nginx, but I don't have the slowness issue when I don't proxy and just go straight to the mongrel instance, this tells me the problem is not with Nginx, but must be some setting on the OS X server.
<br><br>Does anyone know what would cause proxying in general to be slow on an OS X server? I know its not the network speed from the browser to the server, because when I was connecting directly to the mongrel instance without proxying, file uploads were fine.
<br><br>Sorry for asking this (probably) non-nginx related question on the list, but I started it here, so I figured I would ask one more question.<br><br>Thanks.<br><br>Jamey Cribbs<br><br><br><div class="gmail_quote">On Dec 22, 2007 2:08 PM, Alex Egg <
