Print current running connections in nginx nginx-forum at

Thanks Mathew.

I thought about it and even prototyped it with openresty, but I am concerned
about ngx.shared.DICT.get_keys locking the whole dictionary and blocking
connections that are trying to add new incoming connections. 

Is there some worker datastructure available that can be read and reported
from? The worker obviously knows all the connections it is handling and the
various states the connections are in. So it would be easy to iterate the
internal data structure with an ngx.timer.every timer.
