OpenResty Scalable Web Platform by Extending NGINX with Lua

Lua Resty Lock Library

Yichun Zhang , 30 Sep 2013 (created 30 Sep 2013)

This Lua library implements a simple nonblocking mutex lock API based on Lua Nginx Module's shared memory dictionaries. Mostly useful for eliminating "dog-pile effects".

This library is enabled by default. You can specify the --without-lua_resty_lock option to OpenResty's ./configure script to explicitly disable it.
