max_size is not a strict limit. It's just another watermark for cache
manager to start deleting files.
Also, there might be a difference between du and cache manager used
space estimation
(https://github.com/nginx/nginx/blob/f8a9d528df92c7634088e575e5c3d63a1d4ab8ea/src/os/unix/ngx_files.h#L188)

If your cache gains 25% excess in between of cache manager invocations,
it looks like there is too much data to cache.
You might want to split cache across several nginx instances with an
additional nginx balancer in front of them.

You may also try upgrading nginx to the latest version where cache
manager parameters were added
(http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_proxy_module.html#proxy_cache_path
, manager_files, manager_threshold, and manager_sleep).
Using those parameters and knowing your traffic pattern you can make a
better estimation of required cache size.
You can get newest nginx version from nginx repository:
http://nginx.org/en/linux_packages.html
