It's possible to use DTrace for nginx debugging, [1]. And it's possible
to use a debugging log, [2] to see how nginx processes a request.

Please note, nginx lua module is the third-party product, so I'd recommend
to ask the module's vendor how to debug an execution of a lua script.

Also, nginx functionality can be extended with NGINX JavaScript module, [3].

Thank you.
