I am new to nginx, and I am using it currently on my server to serve
videos to users. a few days ago the server started becoming extremely
slow while have around 500-600 users online, note that I have a 1gbps
line on the server so its not the bandwidth. it takes the server around
a minute or 2 to respond but once the file starts streaming the speed is
decent, so its taking the server long to spot the file I guess! I was
wondering if anyone knows how I can fix this? I have already tried
increasing the open file limit and worker limit, but still not luck!!!
I am also interested to hire someone to fix this for me if they know how
to do it exactly and have previous experience with a similar situation.
