I am setting up an Ubuntu server with nginx, php and mysql.

I have found two options for fast-cgi php. Firstly I can use the spawn-fcgi package and make some startup scripts, similar as done here

The second option is to use the dotdeb packages and use php5-fpm (installation instructions)

Which one shall I choose? Are there any difference in processor usage?

A solution that I liked better than the two mentioned ones: the php-fpm package from Brian Mercer's ppa. Dotdeb's packages did not work, and the fpm package does not need any configuration scripts at all!!!
