What Is The FastCGI Module
The Fast Common Gateway Interface (FastCGI) is an enhancement to the existing
CGI (Common Gateway Interface).
This feature allows the software to run as a server. The goal of
feature is to load the program once, and iterate
in a loop for every request. Instead of creating a new process for each request,
FastCGI feature uses persistent processes
to handle a series of requests. Each individual FastCGI process can
handle many requests over its lifetime, thereby avoiding
the overhead of per-request process creation and termination. To use this
feature, your server must have FastCGI modules
installed. For Apache servers, this is done by installing apache module
and Perl Module
This feature makes the software faster by a factor of 5 to 15 times
depending on each page actions.
How The FastCGI Works Exactlly
When a user requests a page for the first time, say the home page or any
other page of the software, the server creates
a process and runs the software normal at the normal speed then sends the
response to the user browser. After that,
the server does not exit the process or finishes the program, it keeps the
program running as a process in the background.
Now when a user requests any page again or the same page, the server does not
need to create a process and reload
the program again, it has the program already running in a process and waiting
for a request to serve, the server just
send the request to the process running in memory and serves the request on the
fly. This process is repeated for all
If the server does not receive requests for pre set time period, it ends the
process in memory to save resources,
these are server settings.
