Phases are request processing phases, and what you are trying to
do doesn't looks like request processing. Additionally, ctx in
ngx_connection_t implies noticeable memory overhead for keepalive
- starting your processing at any request processing stage as
- using a connection pool cleanup handler if you want to track
- searching though connection pool cleanups if you want to
preserve some connection-specific data.
