[FASTCGI] long process c application

I am new to FastCGI and wonder if it can help in the following scenario.

I am manipulating tape drives using C under linux and I want the things like
tape status to be shown on a web page( after a button click) using the
application as a CGI. 

The application fails/times out under CGI as tape processes take ages.

Is FastCGI the answer here or do I press on looking at forking/child process etc
in C.
