I am doing some little stress tests on my Nginx server.

I was wondering if there is a way to get some Nginx live status like how many users are connected, and so on ... ?

Thanks for your help guys.

Cheers, Julien

Nginx has a module for retrieving certain statistics, I haven't used it myself but it appears to be what you're searching for.

I use StubStatusModule with the following configuration:

location /nginx_status {
                stub_status on;
                access_log   off;
                deny all;
