2020-10-05 17:37:54 +0000 marked best answer Content-Length vs Packet Length

Hi, I've a small confusion:

Content-Length header - Number denoting an the exact byte length of the HTTP body.

Packet Length - Specifies the length of the entire IP packet

While analysing a capture, I see Content-Length = 96544 and packet length = 22310 on Wireshark.

Question: If Packet Length has the length of entire packet (including Content-Length), how come Content-Length is bigger than Packet Length? am I missing something?

2020-09-28 14:33:10 +0000 marked best answer ssl_client_cert header truncated

Some calls were failing when our application is looking for ssl_client_cert header. (flow: incoming-request --> (443>haproxy>4440) --> app_server:4440)

The current assumption is, haproxy fails to forward ssl_client_cert header sometimes.

Looking at the tcpdump, I see "[truncated]ssl_client_cert". This is while sending the packet to the backend server: question: what does it mean when a http header is marked as truncated?

Thank you for the clarification! and if the 'ssl_client_cert' header is missing, what does it tell? I'm confused because
