NAME ^

RT::Extension::Nginx - optimized request tracker within minutes

SYNOPSIS ^

    perl Makefile.PL
    make
    make install

    cd /opt/rt4/local/plugins/RT-Extension-Nginx/
    ./sbin/rt-generate-nginx-conf
    ./sbin/rt-nginx-control start

DESCRIPTION ^

This is beta software. Lacks some documentation.

Extension comes with two scripts:

rt-generate-nginx-conf

Generates optimized nginx config from RT configuration and templates. Creates required directories and files.

rt-nginx-control

Simple script that can start, stop and restart nginx and fcgi processes. Run without arguments to see help.

FEATURES ^

Fast web server in front

Nginx is very fast web server with low memory footprint.

Reverse proxy like setup

Two servers schema with web server in front and FastCGI (FCGI) server running RT as backend. Nginx buffers replies from FCGI, so heavy FCGI processes get free and ready to serve next request before user gets the current request.

Forking FCGI

FCGI processes are forked so share some memory between processes lowering memory footprint.

Serving images without FCGI

Nginx serves /NoAuth/images/ location from files without touching FCGI and does it properly accounting local directory and plugins' directories.

Semi-static serving of css and js

Files served from /NoAuth/css/ and /NoAuth/js/ locations are stored on first request for re-use.

Content gziping

Html, css and js gzipped. For example size of the primary css file drops from 78k down to 19kb.

TODO

A few things can be improved within RT and this extension, but it's a good start.
