Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Why should the server be blacklisted ?

By curl or another program ?

How server can get blacklisted ?

Is it server or program dependant ?

Is this the IP address that get blacklisted, or the name of the server in the http answer ?

PS : I don't know if it is relevant, but i'm running on Linux / Ubuntu.

Here is the full output (testing tornado in localhost)

See: https://github.com/bagder/curl/blob/master/lib/pipeline.c

Seems to be part of a curl feature related to pipelining.

bool Curl_pipeline_server_blacklisted(struct SessionHandle *handle,
                                      char *server_name)
    infof(handle, "Server %s is not blacklisted\n", server_name);

It start with a star, which means, according to the doc, that's it's a curl message. –  JulienFr May 16 '14 at 16:54
You are right, my mistake. Updated. –  Zoredache May 16 '14 at 16:58
I looked at the source, but didn't manage to understand what was the blacklist, when a server entered it, and what was the consequences. –  JulienFr May 16 '14 at 19:10
The notes in daniel.haxx.se/blog/2013/03/26/… describe blacklisting, and how libcurl uses this option to disable HTTP pipelining for certain sites. Not sure if there's a way to control this behaviour from the front-end curl application; this might only be tunable by calling the libcurl API directly. –  Alex Varju Jun 13 '14 at 22:40
So the blacklist is about HTTP pipelining only. No big deal then. –  JulienFr Aug 6 '14 at 14:37
