Hey guys...

I'm using openresty in my proxy server, and my proxy server receives response data using header and body filter by lua!

some times the response status code is 502 or maybe 504. some times it's generated by upstream and sometimes there is a connection error between my proxy edge server and upstream server!

is there any way to check if the response status code is generated by edge server (openresty) because of connection errors or is generated via upstream like this line in PHP:

header("HTTP/1.1 502 Bad Gateway");

I need to know the source of 502 , 504 connection error in my edge proxy server! (edge or upstream)

thanks a lot...

Hadi,

You can use "Server" header.

And if you allow to pass "Server" header from upstream(s) to the client, you should be able to distinguish between 5XX coming from upstream vs. openresty ones:

proxy_pass_header "Server";

It’ll work if you have multiple proxies staked also.

Just have them set with different "Server" header.

Naturally, any “must be in response” header should do, providing you distinguish them.

"Server" is most convenient one, IMO.

There should be more ways to do it.
