> Subject: Calculating the max. clients by worker_connections
> In the wiki (http://wiki.nginx.org/EventsModule#worker_connections), it said:
> The worker_connections and worker_proceses from the main section
> allows you to calculate maxclients value:
> max_clients = worker_processes * worker_connections
> In a reverse proxy situation, max_clients becomes
> max_clients = worker_processes * worker_connections/4
> Since a browser opens 2 connections by default to a serve...
> Why only in reverse proxy mode, the max clients is it divided by 4,
> but not divided by 2 as normal web server?
