This answer is no longer valid for current OS X versions. See the answer here superuser.com/a/50104/57219 which works at least up to 10.8.3

comment Is it normal for inbound traffic to far exceed outbound traffic?
Thanks for the thoughts. 1) No, as described above, the response from the apps is outbound. (I'm looking at network adapter traffic.) 2) There are a few scattered POST, but not significant. 3) The only routes accepting POST regularly are for my own admin, and those are used infrequently for only kilobytes. 4) Good point on blocking, thanks.

comment Is it normal for inbound traffic to far exceed outbound traffic?
@James A good clarifying question. ifconfig shows RX bytes:9.3GB TX bytes:1.4GB on the ethernet interface. Further, I've performed multiple tests where I download massive amounts of data from the server over a short period of time and see the "outbound" graphs spike, confirming which direction is which. It seems pretty clear to me that it is data flowing into my server that is outpacing the data flowing out of it.

@voretaq7 A good description, but you've described the exact opposite of my situation. My server (has gobs more inbound traffic that outbound. I'm starting to look at tools for analysis now. (Sadly, Darkstat looks promising but appears broken, never able to return data to me.)

comment Debugging NGINX - Invalid requests appearing in NGINX log file
By date that's true; by helpful answer I believe the other question has the edge. :) (Some requests may be drones, as @incredimike suggests below. In my experience yesterday analyzing my logs, almost all the 400's I'm getting are from Firefox keep-alives—or unused HTTP connections—5 seconds after the last valid request.)
