Trying to set timer_resolution - but... 'unknown directive "timer_resolution"'


#1

as per subject, I’m trying to set timer_resolution in my nginx.conf
file - but to no avail. When i do an “nginx -t”, I get the “unknown
directive” error message - despite the fact that this should be a
known directive (see
http://wiki.nginx.org/NginxHttpMainModule#timer_resolution)

So my 2 questions:

  • what’s wrong? I have my ‘timer_resolution’ in http { }. I believe
    this is correct. Looking at the source, this should be correct too
    (it’s an “nginx core command”). I’ve also tried (just in case) setting
    ‘timer_resolution’ to ‘10’, instead of ‘10ms’, but to no avail
  • the default value is 0 (wiki needs to be corrected) as per source.
    What does that mean?

This is with the latest stable, nginx 0.6.36.

As it core command it should be set on global level:

timer_resolution 100ms;

http {

‘timer_resolution’ to ‘10’, instead of ‘10ms’, but to no avail

0 means that timer_resolution is not ised. 10 means 10 seconds.

0 means that timer_resolution is not ised.

sorry? you mean “used”? so ‘0’ means that this should be the ideal? (i
want timer_resolution to be generally as accurate as possible).

10 means 10 seconds.

got it, thanks.

Yes, “used”.

Yes, by default timer_resolution is not used.
