You are testing here only one aspect - connection rate. Try something 
like phpinfo() or just some huge html file with php extension - this way 
php would do nothing apart feeding the data to nginx through socket. It 
would be good to see tests for 50k docs and for something like 500k.

Sphinx of black quartz judge my vow.
