If you follow the suggested link in the previous post you can download an O'Reilly Nginx book.

One suggestion I have to improve performance is to firewall off all the 'bots. Firewalls are extremely efficient. Start with AWS:


Bots are half the internet traffic, but that includes both bad and good bots. If you are handy with bgp.he.net, I suggest blocking OVH.

Some people block entire countries.

You're probably more likely to get useful tips if you can show your
starting point, and describe what result you want.

is a few years old, but does include a link to the specific tests that
were done then.

It also has a link to a sizing guide with some numbers when using nginx
as a reverse proxy.

Maybe what you see as "a drastic drop", is normal, if every http request
involves a new from-scratch tls connection?

Good luck with it,
