I hope I understand it right: HAProxy is able (http-mode) to buffer the output (response) from a backend server, so that the server process is made free as soon as possible. A slow client would therefore "only" consume ressources on the HAProxy. How much data from the response can be buffered by HAProxy? Is there a config variable? Is it tcp/ip buffering or buffering in HAProxy userspace?
