Re: Adding a fd that is not obtained through accept to the list the active connections

Hi Ottavio

I’m probably overlooking something in the description of what you want but
I think NGINX out of the box provides you with what you want.

Here’s an example of one I’ve implemented.

A software project I don’t develop retrieves dependencies from w3.org (it’s
a SOAP web service that retrieves a remote XSD)

The trouble with depending on a file sourced from w3.org is that if the
file is requested too frequently w3.org will rate limit your requests.

One solution would be to store the XSD in the web service but that’d
require changing the application.

I chose to run an NGINX where it’s upstream was configured to point at
w3.org and to avoid needlessly retrieving the same content repeatedly a
cache was used.

So the NGINX was listening on local host in this case and for the backend
it was connecting to whatever w3.org resolves to. And so no changes were
needed in the app I changed the servers hosts file to point w3.org to
localhost. This isn’t a problem for NGINX to connect to w3.org as the w3.org
IP was hard coded in the upstream.

And NGINX’s built in connection counting works with this.

Barring the cache is this what you’re describing you want?
