Depends on what is normal for your app. IMO these are WAY to high for defaults. It means that nginx will wait 1.5 minutes(!) for a downed server to respond before moving to your other box. You should also look at max_fails and fail_timeout.

To me it seems nginx did its job. Glad you solved the FDs with ulimit -n that is the only obvious thing that jumps out at me on the nginx side. I highly suspect an application bottleneck from what you describe, such as a slow db or something.
