Create swapfile

sudo install -o root -g root -m 0600 /dev/null /swapfile

Write out a 4GB file named ‘swapfile’

dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile bs=1k count=4096k

Let linux know about swap file

mkswap /swapfile


swapon /swapfile

activate swap also after boot. Add to the file system table

echo "/swapfile       swap    swap    auto      0       0" | sudo tee -a /etc/fstab

Nginx tuning for best perfomance

NGINX Tuning For Best Performance

For this configuration you can use web server you like, i decided, because i work mostly with it to use nginx.

Generally, properly configured nginx can handle up to 400K to 500K requests per second (clustered), most what i saw is 50K to 80K (non-clustered) requests per second and 30% CPU load, course, this was 2 x Intel Xeon with HyperThreading enabled, but it can work without problem on slower machines.


Reverse proxy in haproxy

We will try something roughly equivalent to the following ProxyPass directives in Apache2:

ProxyPass        /foo/  http://foo.local
ProxyPassReverse /foo/  http://foo.local

In haproxy.cfg define a backend named foo, to reverse-proxy to foo.local backend server.
