Maxim, thanks for the review of the logs.

Increasing proxy_buffer_size wouldn't end up on malloc()ing more
memory at the end of a period?

I think on sending small chunks (say, 500 bytes) each minute,
during hours, to the clients.

For each small chunk, I think, we will be malloc()ing one buffer, or
am I wrong?
