I have posted the question here at StackForge with all the details.


Basically, http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_40_0/doc/html/boost_asio/overview/core/reactor.html
did not work when used with ssl. With plain-tcp steam socket, it works fine.

o If we do ssl_socket->lowest_layer().async_read_some(null_buffers(), read_cb), then we do get all data in read_cb, but read_cb keep getting called endlessly (and read_some then returns 0, with error 11 resource unavailable) (This causes cpu remain over-utilized for ever)

If we do ssl_socket->async_read_some(null_buffers(), read_cb), then it works fine with small amounts of data. When larger data is to be received (~20MB or so), then not all data is received. around 1% of data towards the end is never received by the application. My guess is that data is sitting in openssl library some where

I tried with latest ssl and boost code, but that did not help either.

Can some one please help ?
