comment Out of disk space, what's the source?
Ah, totally right. I missed the correlation! Too bad I terminated the instances so I can't investigate what was growing too quickly.

comment can nginx retry request if unicorn is overloaded and returns a 502?
Yeah... it doesn't really make sense to retry a unicorn master that has already returned a 502...

comment two seemingly identical AWS EC2 c1.xlarge servers with very different performance
I've launched 5 new instances and they all seem to experience this problem. Has my EC2 neighborhood just gotten worse?

comment can nginx retry request if unicorn is overloaded and returns a 502?
I don't know if I'll have a chance to actually test this out right now, but the logic seems sound. I'll accept this as the answer given that reasoning.

Also, is location = /maintenance.html { break; } necessary?

Actually, I disagree -- I added a comment to serverfault.com/questions/18994/nginx-best-practices/…. Basically, you want to return a 503 error or else bots and indexers will think your maintenance page is part of your actual site... There's nothing wrong with an if statement if you use it correctly -- the docs say that ifs are safe if you're just doing return xxx;.

comment NGinx Best Practices
This is not ideal as /maintenance.html will be served as a 200 response. You probably want search engines to recognize that the maintenance page is not your actual website. You would probably want to return a 503 (Service Temporarily Unavailable). The only way I can figure out how to do this is with an if (-f ...) { return 503; } and error_page 503 /maintenance.html. What do you think?

comment Should pretty error pages be served with the correct status codes?
Ahh yeah, I realized that after I posted. I guess Google doesn't have a file called 404.html... lol.
