    Richfaces 3.3.3 fileupload fails - in Front-end Apache web server setup - with error: (OS 10054) existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

    kumar22 Newbie

      We have a setup with Front-end Apache web server for JBoss application server. Tomcat Connector is used to connect the front-end web server and the JBoss application server.

      UI env is Myfaces 1.2.6 with Tomahawk, Ricfaces 3.3.3

      Please note that only from one of our client network, upload is failing only for large file sizes. (sometimes fails for above 50-100MB, and always fails for above 200MB)

       

      The logs in apache web server shows:

       

       

      x.x.x.x - - [09/Sep/2012:11:45:49 -0400] "POST /myapp/ui/home.faces HTTP/1.1" 200 4986

      AJAXREQUEST=actionForm:j_id45760 HTTP/1.1" 200 -

       


      The error in JBoss console is:

      I am not sure if

      1. firewalls in that country site can give this problem or

      2. apache / jboss configuration (req timeout etc) - but then upload works from other country sites.

      3. web.xml settings where MyFacesExtensionsFilter and Ajax4jsf Filter exists - but then again upload works from other country sites. 

       

       

      A note about Richfaces fileupload component client behavior: It is trying multiple times to upload the same file. This is evident from the

      progress bar, where it tries to upload some bytes, fails, again starts from the start, again fails...this pattern is also matches with

      apache server logs as shown below. Finally, after 5-10 tries, upload fails with "Transfer error occurred".

      Please share any pointers or workarounds that I can try, and that will be very helpful.

       

      Thanks very much in advance.

      @update : After running apache with debug logs, the error log shows the upload for a single file of size 200MB. In this case, 5 tries happened to upload, in each try, the error message is [client x.x.x.x] (OS 10054)An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.  : core_output_filter: writing data to the network, but finally upload failed. Please share any idea where to fix this issue. Thank you in advance.
