Which nginx version you are using?

With nginx 1.11.5+, there are manager_files / manager_sleep /
manager_threshold parameters you may want to play with, see
http://nginx.org/r/proxy_cache_path. These parameters allows
limiting cache manager's work on a particular cache to some finite
time, and therefore help to better maintain specified max_size of
other caches.

If you are using an older version, an upgrade to the recent
version might help even without further tuning, as older versions
do not limit cache manager's work on a particular cache at all.
