That was not fun.If NGINX brings some features for health check in the open source version, it would be better. ​Make modules easier to enable or disable. The beauty and ugly side of the NGINX modules is you have to know how to compile the module. For beginners or non-very technical aspirant(s) going for NGINX, they have to learn how to compile the modules.​I would like it to have a more user-friendly graphical interface.The biggest room for improvement would be to allow NGINX Core machines to cluster for memory zones in some way with a plug and play module. ​

Pricing and Cost Advice
​NGINX is a free tool in Brazil. There are some companies which do support it.​The price is the cost to contract support with a specialized company, usually during consulting hours.​​NGINX Plus is worth it, if you need it. If you do not need the features or support, the free and open source package is more than capable. ​I am not so happy with their pricing policy, but this is not the worse thing in my life. I can tolerate it.
