I am planning to setup nginx as reverse proxy. I will have apache to deliver my dynamic content, and nginx will deliver the static content.
My configuration i have now is just Apache with fastCGI. This gives me no configuration problems and runs great.
After I have set up nginx I want to run some benchmarks to see if I really got some performance increases, else i will switch back.
Does anyone know how I can benchmark this type of setup? Or maybe someone did this already and have some canned results, I will be glad to hear them.
