If gzip is enabled, something goes wrong within the avatar transmission.

The browser complains
Failed to load resource: net::ERR_CONTENT_LENGTH_MISMATCH

If Grafana is used through mod_proxy the apache log says
(70008)Partial results are valid but processing is incomplete: [client ...] AH01110: error reading response

If gzip is disabled, everything works as expected.

Grafana 3.1.1
OS Fedora 4.5.6-200.fc23.x86_64

enabling gzip also causes problems with plugin readme display, which shows the result of running the raw gzipped data through markdown

Enabling gzip also breaks the /metrics endpoint.

Both when behind a nginx reverse proxy, and when going direct to grafana.

Visiting the endpoint in Chrome returns ERR_CONTENT_LENGTH_MISMATCH

When using nginx I see:

2017/10/03 08:32:30 [error] 1630#1630: *10178 upstream prematurely closed connection while reading upstream, client: XXX.XX.X.XX, server: XXXXXXXXXXXXX, request: "GET /metrics HTTP/1.1", upstream: "", host: "XXXXXXXXX"

And prometheus, when trying to scrape /metrics, shows unexpected EOF.

Version 4.5.2 (commit: ec2b0fe)

gzip: plugin readme content set explicitly
Macaron's gzip middleware tries to automatically figure out the content
type for a file when gzipped and seems to mostly fail with plugin
readmes. This change sets the content type to plain text.

Fixes #9344. Ref #5952.

Partial fix - fixed the plugin readme getting the wrong content type when gzipping. Could not recreate the avatar bug.

the avatar bug might have been fixed in recent commit (when I merged annotations, as I in that commit brought over my changes from develop branch of the gravatar proxy)

metrics: disable gzip for /metrics endpoint
Prometheus client lib support gzip by itself. we should
leave it up to the client/promhttp to decide if gzip
should be used.
