Description Yann Simon 2014-04-04 14:10:57 UTC
In a ReadListener, if the servlet input stream is read with another thread as the servlet thread, the upload is very slow.

The following sample application reproduces the problem:

/upload2 reads the input stream in the servlet thread
/upload forks a new thread that reads the servlet input stream

My measurements:

With tomcat 8.0.5
/upload: 2 minutes
/upload2: 3,8 s

It is expected that /upload is more slow that /upload2, but not with that difference.

The same tests with jetty:
/upload: 9,5 s
/upload2: 3,7s

Thanks for the report and the test case. This has been fixed in 8.0.x for 8.0.6 onwards.
