By "lifetime" you mean "fastcgi_cache_path ... inactive=15s"?
If yes, than you may want to change your configuration: this isn't
going to work well as nginx uses "inactive" as a guard against
stale cache entry locks (left by crashed workers, if any). It
was never expected to be lower than time required to fetch
a resource from an upstream, and setting it to lower expected to
If no, you may want to provide more details. (Ideally I would
like to see full debug log showing the crash, the "ignore long
locked inactive cache entry" alert and some time before it, but I
understand it would be hard to obtain unless you are able to
reproduce the problem at will.)

Recently posted patch series addresses major part of the
problem: it resolves deadlock after such crashes. It would be
fine to resolve the crash itself too, but I wasn't yet able to
trace the problem cause (unless it's caused by too low inactive
time, which is mostly a configuration problem, see above).
