Last updated on APRIL 06, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Traffic Director - Version 11.1.1.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When a request is sent to Oracle Traffic Director (OTD) that contains a double-slash ("//"), OTD will replace the double-slash with a single slash ("/") in the request before sending to Origin Server.

For example:

The incoming request is 'GET /test//test1/test.html', which OTD modifies to 'GET /test/test1/test.html' before passing the request to the Origin Server.

This can be seen in the OTD logs, when it is configured to log the header information:
