Workers scheduler

Hello everyone,

I’m wondering how nginx is balancing requests process among the
different workers.

Is there a scheduler ? If yes, what’s the algorithm ?

I’d like to use fair queuing for my workers (i.e. send a new request to
process to the least loaded worker, based on CPU, memory or IO wait for
exemple).

Thanks in advance.

There is no workers scheduler. Workers try to hold accept_mutex which
allows only one worker to get new connections notification and to call
accept(). You can switch accept_mutex off, then all scheduling will be
done by OS scheduler via accept() call.
