Interestingly it was today a different size in Bytes then with my tests yesterday but it is over the day always the exact same size. Then php hangs and suddenly php-fpm disconnects and errors out and the browser shows that something went wrong - maybe the server is busy, but no error code. That suddenly is always around 18 seconds and it is also always the same time.

I did a tcpdump on the loopback-interface on port 9000 and you see that the upload starts and suddenly there is an error uploading the file-message in the dump.

That’s already the the case.
