Does stub_status itself cause performance issues?


I searched everywhere but found nothing. Is there an overhead of setting
stub_status page and activate it all the time? Using Apache’s
for example has an impact on performance and recommended to be used only
debugging purposes, not all the time. What about stub_status?

Posted at Nginx Forum:

I did some performance tests and it seemed to me as-if the status stub
caused a bit of a performance hit but nothing really concerning. However
for the status stub doesn’t really give a lot of useful information IMO
because its just supposed to be a placeholder for an nginx+ status page-
I’m going the route of having a log tailer extract metrics.
