Calculating the max client in Nginx


If you use Nginx as a web server, the max. number of client can be served at the same time by Nginx should be calculated by the following formula:

max_clients = worker_processes * worker_connections

But this does not equal to the number of users can be served at the same time by Nginx, since a lot of browsers open 2 connections to the web server at the same time.
