Depends on what the person doing the benchmark wanted to archieve as there
are quite more system settings (which by default in different distributions
differ) regarding tcp / webserver finetuning rather than a simple 'open file
limits' (and even there you can see the author having some trouble).
If the topic was to find a distribution which works best without doing
anything then maybe you can go with it..
Other than that its not very related to nginx performance.
p.s. also sometimes its 'ab' which fails at making high concurent connection
count and not the webserver.. should use some other tools (like httperf /
to verify the "FAIL"
