Oh great, so i can parameter using a cache mechanism using
fastcgi_cache_path or the Lua Module SRCACHE for my PHP upstream block
simply by checking for example $connections_waiting on each request.
I don't know exactly what would be a right setting for using a cache by
testing $connections_waiting. I have to do some tests.

thank you
