Thread support?

When I used ./configure in making nginx it said in the summary that
thread support was not enabled. Is this normal? Would I get better
performance by enabling it? If so, how do I tell it to use threads?
Thanks!

Yes, thread support is broken for the moment.

Would I get better performance by enabling it? If so, how do I tell it to use
threads? Thanks!

You can play with the worker_processes directive to create additional
processes, I believe a good setting value could be the number of
cores/processors to exploit I/O wait without increasing too much the
number of
context switches or processor cache misses.
It’s a very contextual tuning (depending on hardware, web applications,
traffic…), but don’t expect a 100 % increase in performance; with only
one
process Nginx is already very fast!

Best regards

No, nginx does not support threads. I will disable the confused message.
