Not strictly an nginx question but don't know where else to ask and I
think some of you will have valuable opinions on this!
nginx <-- fastcgi --> php
Is it better to have 1 PHP master process on 1 port re-spawning many
children, or many PHP masters on many ports spawning fewer children?
E.g. one master with e.g. 32 worker children on 1 port, or 4 masters
with 8 children each on 4 ports?
Initial thoughts would be more masters as it's a multi-core box, but
not sure, if all cores are switching and respawning could that get
Many thanks for any input ...
