David - so you are using ec2 as well? If you go back over the past couple of weeks you will see our discussions here on enhancing nginx's monitoring capabilities.

For instance one thing I would like is to have nginx somehow notify an external program in the event it deems an upstream to be offline.  This way such a script could apply other logic and decide to launch a replacement upstream automatically.

The latest school of thought we've had on this is that nginx may writes status information into a shared memory location where a monitoring script could keep an eye out and get reports.

Francois - it would be great if one of the things nginx could report on would be things like average connection and response times on a per upstream basis.  Is this doable?
