nginx serving large-ish static files on VM

January 23, 2012 07:19PM
I'm serving some 10-30mb files at peak times up to 250-300 requests per second, if I'm reading these RDD'd /status logs correctly. These are on VPS servers, which may mean some network settings aren't available, and may mean disk IO is an issue.

It mostly works, but sometimes the massive simultaneous connections overwhelms the system, and I'm wondering if anyone here is doing something like that and has suggestions for better configs.

What's the proper use of sendfile in this instance? I've read conflicting information. How about output_buffers? tcp_delay, tcp_nopush?

Thank you,
