Subject [jira] [Created] (LIBCLOUD-552) CloudFiles CURL Requet uses -X HEAD instead of --head or -I
Date Sat, 10 May 2014 21:58:34 GMT
Brian Metzler created LIBCLOUD-552:

             Summary: CloudFiles CURL Requet uses -X HEAD instead of --head or -I
                 Key: LIBCLOUD-552
             Project: Libcloud
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Storage
    Affects Versions: 0.14.0-beta3
         Environment: Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS
curl 7.22.0 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.22.0 OpenSSL/1.0.1 zlib/ libidn/1.23 librtmp/2.3
Python 2.7.3 and Python 3.2.3

            Reporter: Brian Metzler
            Priority: Critical

When running driver.container.download_object(), it attempts to get the metadata of the object
by using 'curl -X HEAD', instead of 'curl -I' or 'curl --head'.  curl does not properly handle
HEAD requests with -X HEAD, as it still attempts to download the full file.

Just turn on debugging, and check out the time it takes for a standard curl -I versus curl
