Sub-requests to an upstream server

August 20, 2013 11:43AM

I am writing an nginx plugin and I am trying to send sub-requests to an upstream server.
I am aware of the ngx_http_subrequest function but I didn't succeed to use it in my case and I am not sure it is what I need.

In my use case, I have a structure in shared memory. This structure must leave as long as some conditions are fulfilled based on several sequential sub-requests to an upstream server. My first problem is that ngx_http_subrequest must have a server request to work. I would prefer to send a client request based on an internal event (in my case a timer event). If this is not possible, I can use a server request to do that but in that case I don't want to add sub-requests responses content to the response body. Is this possible ? Do you have any advice ?
