in reply to HTTP::Proxy traffic calculating

$message is a HTTP::Response object when your filter is a response filter, so you can access the request via $message->request(). This should let you compute your stats in the response filter.

Please note that HTTP::Proxy does currently behave well with large request bodies: it loads the whole request body in memory before processing and sending it to the next hop. This is more than often okay, except when you upload very laaaarge files.

    The main problem is that incoming data (response from external sources) comes to defined filter in chunks. For example for google.com there are 4 chunks, means 4 calls of sub defined in

    $proxy->push_filter(response => ...

    And $$buffer value seems desapearing in last (always 0-sized) chunk.

    p.s. Thanks for great component :)
