comment Using a variable in an upstream declaration?
I did and it didn't work, but I was asking because I didn't know if the host variable had a different name in the upstream directive or if variables needed to be passed to the directive for them to be available.

comment Using a variable in an upstream declaration?
It works! I didn't know you could specify a proxy without defining an upstream. Nice. Can you elaborate on why it's a bad idea to use in production? Assuming host can only have one value... otherwise you have to create symlinks for each host and you are better off making static.

comment Postgresql Performance - Adjusting SHMMAX and SHMALL
SHMMAX need to be increased in order to increase shared_buffers which is the lowest hanging fruit when it comes to postgresql performance. Can you add a link to the documentation?

Does rcconf work for both upstart and sysv? or do I need two tools to manage all the services, because on Ubuntu 10.04 services seem to be a mix of the two.

Interesting. I don't have time now, but I will read the links you provided later. Performance wise, how does it compare?

comment Nginx Varnish Nginx Django?
I probably have enough bandwidth at the moment that I dont need nginx in front of Varnish. As for the app servers, it sounds like there wouldnt be any great advantage to having nginx so I'll stick with Apache/mod_wsgi. Thanks again for all the advice/thorough explanations.

comment Nginx Varnish Nginx Django?
Varnish is appealing because it gives me full control over which requests get sent to which backend. Varnish also health checks backend servers, failover is simple to setup and it handles slow/dead backends gracefully (if both servers die).

comment Nginx Varnish Nginx Django?
First and foremost, thanks Jesper and Graham for taking the time to write such a comprehensive responses. I am planning on putting a load balancing server in front of two app servers. One server will handle most of the traffic with the second being used mostly for fail over and beta testing new features.

varnish has some attractive load balancing features that nginx doesn't out of the box
