Re: Nginx prematurely closing connections when reloaded

Sébastien,

Nginx should keep active connections open and wait for a request to
complete before closing.
A reload starts a new set of workers while old workers wait for old
connections to shut down.
The only exception I'm aware of is having worker_shutdown_timeout
configured: in this case a worker will wait till this timeout and
forcibly close a connection. Be default there is no timeout.

It would be curious to see error log of nginx at IP_1 (the reloaded one)
while the reload happens. It may explain the reason for connection resets..

Kind regards,
Igor.
