fastcgi_pass unix:/tmp/php.sock;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_send_timeout 8m;
fastcgi_read_timeout 8m;
fastcgi_connect_timeout 8m;
include /etc/nginx/fastcgi.conf;

location /status {
stub_status on;

} }

/proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range 9000 65535
/proc/sys/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_conntrack_tcp_timeout_time_wait 1

If any other information need pls tell me.
I am not able to find where I have to set max active connection limit
nginx in the conf.

you config is somewhat messed_up, but it think this is not an issue

are you sure your fastcgi_process is able to deliver more than 520
connections? -> to be defined
event {}

max clients = worker_processes * worker_connections

In a reverse proxy situation, max clients becomes

max clients = worker_processes * worker_connections/4

This is the php-fastcgi file,

/usr/bin/spawn-fcgi -s /tmp/php.sock -M 0666 -C 9 -u nginx -g nginx -U
-G nginx -f /usr/bin/php-cgi -P /var/run/

And in this file I didn’t restrict parallel connections to 520.

is it possible to edit the limit of active connections in nginx? Like
it to 5 active connections at a time ?

your ngfinx-config seems ok (except that part that should be deleted
global-section and
appear only in event {…}

can you test your fastcgi_process with ab (apache benchmark - tool) oder
httperf until
you reach max_clients w/out reverse_proxying through nginx?
