[smokeping-users] how to get fastcgi working under Ubuntu 16.04?

I've recently upgraded my Ubuntu VPS to 16.04 and broke all sorts of 
things by doing that. Smokeping is working again but when searching for 
info I found that it does not seem to be normal that a page needs like 
20 seconds to load. I think fastcgi is the solution for that. However, 
I've googled several hours and tested all sorts of commands but I cannot 
get any speed improvement.

I have 123 hosts, is it normal to have a initial page load time of 20+ 

If a page is loaded and I click another page it will again take a long 
time. If I then click on the same page as before it is much quicker. So 
it seems to be cached for a while.

Can anyone provide a (draft?) description of how to get fastcgi working 
with smokeping in Ubuntu? I'll be testing first on a VM before applying 
on my VPS. If I can get this going, I'm willing to make a webpage 
describing the procedure as there do seem to be more people strugling.

Any help is welcome.
