Today’s happy fun project: profiling FastCGI memory consumption

On Saturday night, well, Sunday morning between the hours of 12 am and 3:30 am, I switched our production web server from Nginx/Apache to Nginx/FastCGI/PHP-FPM. My original reasoning for the project was an understanding the latter combination could perform at a higher level. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear to do so out of the box.
