How to view nginx status


To view nginx status some configuration upgrade is required in nginx.conf

I used following configuration to get nginx status:

location = /nginx_status {
  stub_status on;
  deny all;

Since its not a good idea to give access of nginx_status url, I am allowing only one IP and denying all.

After changing configuration restart nginx and view configuration from url http://yourhostname/ngins_status

Output of url looks something like below:

Active connections: 1 
server accepts handled requests
 10 10 55 
Reading: 0 Writing: 1 Waiting: 0
