Thank you very much for detailed infos, I will test it in next weeks. Btw. can nginx handle also role of perlbal
or its reproxy features are not so advanced to do transparent reproxy? I was going trough nginx manual but 
couldnt find anything like this.

mogstored for disk usage info collecting only. We have sucessfully used
Nginx as WebDAV backend.

mogstored or I can do puts/gets over lighttpd/nginx and just keep
mogstored running on background to collect disk usage infos? I know there
is support for lighttpd in mogstored, but how could I use nginx instead?
Are there any disadvantages of such setup? Goodwill
