Hi people, I’m just studying a lot nginx, having heard a lot about its speed. Now I’d like to test it as load balancer, but does it make sense to have a nginx server as load balancer in front of another nginx as web server? I cannot found anything about this practice so I can imagine it’s not a good idea… anyway, if it would be possible and in case it’s a good idea, how could be the configuration to first check for itself and then going to another nginx location?
