I am running latest nginx and using it for load balancing. I am using the
upstream fair module.

I have 3 backend servers running apache. The problem is that when I start a
load test the balancing is not done correctly. The first server in the
upstream gets most of the traffic and the other 2 get very few traffic. If I
restart nginx then all 3 backend servers start to get the same ammount of

Am I doing something wrong?

Please advise
