Tracing the Slowest PCRE Regular Expressions in OpenResty or Nginx Processes
We have uploaded Test::Nginx 0.30 to CPAN:
It will appear on the CPAN mirror near you in the next few hours or so. After that, you can install the module like below
sudo cpan Test::Nginx
or better, when you have the App::cpanminus module already installed:
sudo cpanm Test::Nginx
Special thanks go to all our contributors and developers!

This Perl module provides a test scaffold for automated testing in Nginx C module or OpenResty-based Lua library development.
This class inherits from
Test::Base, thus bringing all its declarative
power to the Nginx C module testing practices.
All of our OpenResty projects are using this test scaffold for automated regression testing.
Please check out the full documentation on CPAN:
as well as the official user guide in the book "Programming OpenResty":
All of our Nginx modules (as well as our lua-resty-* libraries) are using Test::Nginx to drive their test suites. And it is also driving my test cluster running on Amazon EC2:
Please note that this module is completely different from the Test::Nginx module originally created by Maxim Dounin.
