> Hi guys,
> We're glad to announce that Tengine (http://tengine.taobao.org), our

> Taobao (http://www.taobao.com) is the largest e-commerce website in
> Asia and ranked #12 on Alexa’s top global sites list. Our website
> serves billions of page views per day. For busy website as us, Nginx
> is obviously the best choice. Thanks to Nginx's high performance,
> small footprint and flexibility, we have done more with less. 
> We first learned the Nginx internals by using it as a traditional web
> server and developing dozens of modules. Then from June of this year
> we started hacking the Nginx core to expand its capabilities. As some
> of the features we have developed may also benefit other Nginx users
> and websites, so why not open source them? We do not want to be just
> open source software users, but also open source contributors. That's
> why the Tengine open source project came out.
> Tengine is based on the latest stable version of Nginx (Nginx-1.0.10).
> Here are a few features and bug fixes you may be interested in
> Tengine:
> 1) Logging enhancement. It supports syslog (local and remote) and pipe
> logging. You can also do log sampling, i.e. not all requests have to
> be written.
> 2) Protects the server when the system load and memory use goes high.
> 3) Combines multiple CSS or JavasScript requests into one request to
> reduce the downloading time.
> 4) Sets the worker process number and CPU affinities automatically.
> Setting Nginx's worker_cpu_affinity is not a pain any more.
> 5) Enhanced limit_req module with whitelist support and more limit_req
> directives in one location.
> 6) More operations engineer friendly server information, so host can
> be located easily when error happens.
> 7) More command lines support. You can list all modules compiled in
> and the directives supported, even the content of configuration file
> itself.
> 8) Set expiration for files according to specific content type.
> 9) Error pages can be set back to 'default'.
> 10) ...
> Basically, Tengine can be considered as a better or superset of Nginx.
> You can download the tar ball here:
> http://tengine.taobao.org/download/tengine-1.2.0.tar.gz
> We want to say thank you to the Nginx team, especially to Igor. Thank
> you very much for your great work! We would love to donate the patches
> against the Nginx-1.1 branch later if you think the patches are okay.
> Frankly, I'm not sure whether the features in Tengine right now can
> impress you guys or not. It's the first step we moving towards open
> source after all. We have built a team working on Tengine and have
> quite a long to-do list. I promise you more enhancements are coming
> out.
