Linux: get socket-status (php5-fpm) via linux command

It's easy to get the status of the current php5-fpm socket through an webserver. But I needed a solution to get the status directly with a linux command.

The solution was quite easy. Just two variables and one command:
export SCRIPTFILENAME=/fpm-status; export SCRIPTNAME=/fpm-status; cgi-fcgi -bind -connect /etc/php5/fpm/sockets/www.socket

Just be sure, you added the correct line in the socket-conf:
pm.status_path = /fpm-status

The output looks like that one:

A nice shell script you can find here:
