My ids is generating so many HTTP 414 requests i.r content Uri is too large, the interesting part is, all these requests are sending from my server to and external IP. I look into Apache and error logs , I couldn't find anything related to 414 status code. even my ids doesn't give much info other than the fallowing info
HTTP/1.1 414 Request-URI Too Large Server: Apache/2.2.22 (Debian) PHP/5.4.4-14+deb7u8 mod_ssl/2.2.22 OpenSSL/ 1.0.1e Vary: Accept-Encoding Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1 Accept-Ranges: bytes Date: Thu, 08 Jan 2015 23:02:47 GMT X-Varnish: 213113893 Age: 0 Via: 1.1 varnish Connection: keep-alive X-Cache: MISS Content-Length: 250 <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN"> <html><head> <title>414 Request-URI Too Large</title> </head><body> <h1>Request-URI Too Large</h1> <p>The requested URL's length exceeds the capacity limit for this server.<br /> </p> </body></html>
I just want know what my server wants to send? Is it a configuration issue?
