nginx_http_push_stream module in streaming mode. Noticing periodic slow
accept and/or response headers. I've scoured the Internet
looking/learning ways to tune Nginx/Linux but I think I've exhausted my

Any help would be appreciated.

Dual Nehalem 5520
Intel 82576 (igb)
Ubuntu 12.04.1 (3.2.0-31-generic x86_64)

Thank You,
