Nginx performance option for Solaris OS using eventport

To increase Nginx performance under Solaris OS you should use eventport event model. This will increase your server throughput at least 20%. Give it a try and see what performance it will offer you.

However, don’t forget to install a specific security patch from Sun Microsystems web site.

Example settings for nginx.conf:

events {
    connections   2000; # connection no.
    use eventport;
}
