Stash Clone of large repository behind haproxy fails

When I clone a large (1 GB) repository that is sitting behind an haproxy. It fails after a minute or so like this:

prompt$ git clone https://myurl/stash/scm/zra/webapp.git
Cloning into 'webapp'...
remote: Counting objects: 692893, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (175584/175584), done.
error: RPC failed; result=56, HTTP code = 200 MiB | 545.00 KiB/s
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
fatal: early EOF
fatal: index-pack failed


The clone works fine if I pull stash out from behind the proxy. I expect I'm configuring something wrong for large file transfers, but I am not sure whats wrong or what configuration option to set. Can somebody who is using haproxy in a production environment point me to some troubleshooting technique?

Yes, I saw that KB article. I've adjusted the client side git config setting with:

postBuffer = 524288000

As another article mentioned and its working for now, hopefully it will stay working. My proxy config is pretty simple and is "mode http". If it breaks again, I will remove confidential information from the config and post it here.

Yes, this the page I saw, It wasn't a kb article after all.

The KB article I linked you to also has that suggestion.

Hi Jeff,

Which proxy are you using? In the article below:

We talk about a specific parameter that could cause that in ngnix.

Could you please have a look and give us a feedback?

Hi Thiago,

Thanks for the response.

As noted above, I'm using haproxy. Also, as shown in the command above, I'm trying to clone not push (in other words going the other direction). Does the article still apply?

Hi jeff,

We've seen a similar error before and wrote this KB article:

Would you mind sharing your haproxy configuration?
