Jeff, any chance of extending your PPA builds to cover Jaunty and
Karmic?

While these 8.04 packages install and run without issues on later
versions
(I test and use them on Hardy and Karmic) I don’t think there’s any
reason
to bother. More work, no benefit. :slight_smile:

Erm … I never thought to try that. I just assumed the dependencies
would be well out of sync by now.

Jeff, thanks for the reply and for making me look stupid in public ;-).

/me scuttles off to install the new nginx

All of the libraries nginx depends on are still binary compatible and
under
active maintenance, so: (a) the packages have the same name, and (b)
they
are still in the repository, so… for now at least, there’s no problem.

I hope not!

Thank a lot Igor

Could you explain new added features in this version in more details?

  • “read_ahead” directive.
  • several “perl_modules” directive may be used.
  • the “limit_req_log_level” and “limit_conn_log_level” directives.

Thanks again

Hoang

  • “read_ahead” directive.

On FreeBSD 7.2 with the patch
http://sysoev.ru/html/freebsd/patch.readahead.txt

This is 404, I’m guessing you mean
http://sysoev.ru/freebsd/patch.readahead.txt
?

Yes, you are right.

A note:
fcntl(O_READAHEAD, size) had been added in FreeBSD 9-CURRENT on Sep 28.
After one month it will be merged in 8-STABLE. For 7-STABLE you may use
the patch. Also you need to increase “sysctl vfs.read_max=32” (512k).

sendfile on;
tcp_nopush on;
aio sendfile;
read_ahead 512k;

On Linux:

sendfile on;
read_ahead 1;

On Linux nginx calls
posix_fadvise(0, 0, 0, POSIX_FADV_SEQUENTIAL);
and the read_ahead value is ignored.

  • several “perl_modules” directive may be used.

perl_modules /path1/to/modules;
perl_modules /path2/to/modules;
perl_modules /path3/to/modules;

  • the “limit_req_log_level” and “limit_conn_log_level” directives.

limit_req_log_level [info|notice|warn|error];
limit_conn_log_level [info|notice|warn|error];

The directives set log level for messages about limiting requests and
connections.
