Sending Traffic to another Server/Port/IP asynchronously

I have nginx as the HTTP server.

I wanted to write a module which asynchronously send all the traffic to
another IP or PORT where my analytics server will be running. I dont
want to create any lag in serving HTTP requests.

Is there any existing module which I can use as a base and modify to
meet my requirements.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

post_action ! whats the co-relation ?

That logging issue was a mistake. All the access_log directive need to
be in a single location/server block.

After a lot of testing. I found an issue.

The processing time of post_action is added to the response time. hence
delaying the response.

Here is how i have used post_action to log.

http {

server {

location / {
proxy_pass http://upstream123;
post_action @loglua;
}

location @loglua {
set $log ‘’;
rewrite_by_lua_file /nginx/mylua.lua;
logformat format1 ‘$log’;
access_log /var/log/nginx/newlog.log format1;
}
}
}

It doesn’t delay response, but block the connection, and that’s why we
don’t
recommend to use it. The best way to gather statistics is parsing access
log
files.
