nginx unresponsive after a while

June 12, 2022 06:15PM
Hi !

I've upgraded from Debian 9 to 11 (via 10) just recently, i.e. from nginx "1.10.3-1+deb9u7" to "1.18.0-6.1". I'm also running ispconfig on this machine, which modifies configuration. But therefore, I try to post complete configurations at this point in time.

Shortly after the upgrade nginx became unresponsive. After restarting the service, it works again, then it takes some days until it's unresponsive again.

In the error.log I only see these lines, but many of them:
2022/06/08 23:45:01 [alert] 592#592: 768 worker_connections are not enough

Now, then running: lsof | egrep '^nginx .* sock'
I get a long list (well, 760+x or so) of these:
nginx 592 www-data 3u sock 0,8 0t0 69062 protocol: TCP

Thus, it seems that nginx still has a lot of open connections which prevent new requests. Note that this is NOT a high traffic site. It's the very opposite in fact.

I enabled debug log and tried to figure out when a connection was left, and it seems to be this:

It seems to be a web scanner sending a POST for /cgi-bin/ViewLog.asp - which does not exist. It finally ends with "http reading blocked" - why? There is a 2nd connection attempt from the same IP in the same second, but I guess the problem comes from the first request.
Is it necessary the nginx sends back a 302 if it receives a request for another server (see the "Host: 192.168.0.14:80" line in the request). Is this a default configuration? I did not spot it...

Does this sound familiar to anyone? I did not find anything in the forum...

Thanks!
Daniel
