I'm running docker images of nginx-proxy (jwilder) and nginx-webserver (vendor nginx container).
nginx-proxy is in front of nginx-webserver.
nginx-proxy supports http2, and it is enabled by default. I can see that in chrome dev tools all my content is downloaded via h2 protocol.
But my backend (nginx-vendor) is configured to use port 80 and http1.1.
now my question is two-fold:
- I understand benefits of http2 for the browser/server communication. But is there a same benefit in running http2 between two nginx servers?
- How do I test the second nginx is using http2?
