Good to hear. :)

This messages are not related to websocket connections, as
websocket connections doesn't do any disk buffering and only use
in-memory buffers. (More specifically, a connection uses two
in-memory buffers with size of proxy_buffer_size - one for
backend-to-client data, and one for client-to-backend data.)

Given the above, I would suppose that you actually have
performance problems unrelated to websockets.

Buffers used looks huge, make sure you have enough memory.

Usuing request body as a cache key isn't really a good idea unless
all request bodies are known to be small.
