I'm working with a hardware crypto accelerator at the moment and have some
The accelerator gives best performance when operations can be done
asynchronously (a thread doesn't wait for a request to the engine to
complete before submitting the next request, results are returned using a
callback mechanism). It also preserves the request order in it's responses.
Can nginx be used in this manner without having to force synchronous
operation at an application level?
For a given connection, does nginx spawn a new thread per packet or does
each packet have to be processed sequentially?
