Running nagios on nginx -- I guess I need a cgi wrapper, any recommendations?

Hi All,

I didn’t realize that I needed a CGI wrapper for the nagios CGI scripts,
oops…

found this article:

Before I go this route, any better / easier suggestions /
recommendations?

Hi,
I did it with fcgiwrap a while ago.
Sorry, the setup is in french, but it might help:

I got it working, thanks!

I’m happy to say that fcgiwrap has been packaged for Debian sid/squeeze
and will be in Ubuntu 10.10 as well.

When I am forced to run CGI, I usually choose one of the tiny HTTP
servers such as thttpd (see http://wiki.nginx.org/ThttpdCGI) and proxy
to it from Nginx. This keeps the memory footprint small (no Apache
required) and still lets me used the more advanced features of Nginx for
non-CGI tasks.

I’m not exactly sure you can go much lighter than fcgiwrap (especially
with several instances running, the per-process overhead is minimal –
84 KB last time I checked on i386).
