When using least_conn and nginx load balancing, does the load balancer keep a running list of connections or does it poll the upstream servers every time it needs to load balance something and get the connection count then?

  • Nginx has a pool of the backend connections anyway. it just has to count how many are on each server. – Christopher Perrin Nov 16 '18 at 15:03
