Multiplexing a a large number of front-end connections among a few back-end connections

April 23, 2012 04:20AM
Hello,

I have a scenario where an NGINX instance is holding persistent HTTP connections from 50,000 clients. Sporadic requests from these clients have to be multiplexed over a few socket connections to back-end servers over a different binary protocol.

Is it possible to write a module to do this. i.e., incorporate the non-HTTP upstream sockets in NGINX's main event loop? And proxy the requests and responses via an id I supply between the HTTP client and the non-HTTP back-end? The few back-end connections are multiplexed, bi-directional and support out-of-band messaging.

I have tried googling for this and am unable to figure out a way to do this.

Regards,
Amit
