I am running a nginx on EC2 (m1.small) for SSL termination.
I am using 2 workers on Ubuntu, with latest nginx (stable), the network throughput is around 2Mbps and system load average is around 2 to 3.
I am wondering if this system is in good health for now,
- what is the queue length (I know nginx can handle a lot of concurrent request, but I mean before the request is being served, how many of them need to wait before being served)
- what is the average queue time for a given request to be served.
I want to know because if my nginx is cpu bounded (e.g. due to SSL), I will need to upgrade to a faster instance.
My current nginx status
