How to scale worker_connections
June 29, 2021 06:06PM
I have set up an Nginx instance with the below config values.

[CODE]
worker_processes 4;

events {
worker_connections 20000;
}
[/CODE]

I expected nginx to create 4*20000=80,000 connections, but I see that nginx still maxes out at 20,000. I have verified ulimits as well which is not limiting the connections. I have a 4 cpu with 8GB of RAM. Suggestions please on why Nginx is not able to scale as intended? Thanks in advance.
