HTTP Feature

HTTP Feature

This section describes the concepts, license requirements, applicable products, and restrictions of the HTTP feature.


HTTP is one of transfer protocols at the application layer. It is used to transfer hypertext from servers to local clients.

Introduction to HTTP

HTTP is used to transfer hypertext from web servers to local clients. HTTP works based on the client/server architecture. Servers provide hypertext content for other computers. A client sends an HTTP request to a specified port (port 80 by default) of a server using a browser to access the hypertext contents.


If HTTP Over SSL (HTTPS) is used to access a server, the default service port is port 443.

A storage system supports both HTTP and HTTPS. When HTTP is enabled for a storage system, a client can use HTTP or HTTPS to access hypertext contents in the storage system.


Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) is a communication protocol based on HTTP 1.1 and allows clients to release, lock, and manage web resources.

A storage system supports DAV. When DAV is enabled for a storage system, a WebDAV client can be used to manage HTTP shares in the storage system.

License Requirements and Compatible Products

This section describes license requirements and compatible products of HTTP.

Impact and Restrictions

This section describes the HTTP feature in terms of supported protocols, network requirements, dependency on other features, and impact on system performance.

Supported Protocols

HTTPS (TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2), HTTP 1.0, and HTTP 1.1 are supported.

Network Requirements

The HTTP feature supports both IPv4 and IPv6 network access protocols.

Interaction with Other Features

Table 1-7 describes the relationship between the HTTP feature and other features.

Table 1-7 Relationship between the HTTP feature and other features




In multi-protocol sharing mode, you are advised to use the byte range lock to exclusively access a file in a file system to prevent file data overwriting or loss and ensure shared data consistency.

Impact on System Performance

File systems can be shared in NFS, CIFS, FTP, and HTTP modes at the same time. When clients concurrently access a file system using different protocols, the overall performance deteriorates slightly.


Verify that clients' operating systems are compatible with the storage system. You can query the compatibility using the Huawei Storage Interoperability Navigator.
