Thank you Stefan.
I also doubted what you said and tested with 1MB file.

client_body_buffer_size is set to 2M and proxy_buffer_size = 2M also.
But it doesn't work.

As my understainding, nginx doesn't make disk I/O for this file transaction because of enough big buffer size. Right?
Please fix me if I'm wrong.
