Multiple (possibly load-balanced) PHP FastCGI Upstream?

Hello all,

I'm a happy user of nginx + PHP FastCGI. Currently, nginx and PHP
FastCGI processes run on different hosts.

We're reaching a point where PHP backend become the main bottleneck.
Can nginx handle the scenario of multiple fastcgi backends, so nginx
will load balance fastcgi requests to multiple upstreams?

Thank you,
Arie Karhendana
