Ubuntu+Nginx packet loss / dropped upstream connections

Hello Nginx experts,
We make heavy use of Nginx as a reverse-proxy/load-balancer. It communicates
with Apache and Tornado hosts upstream and proxies them publicly on port
80/443 - pretty standard.
The problem is, when pinging the LB host, every 30 pings or so, a ping is
completely dropped and the latency immediately jumps from <20ms to >1000ms,
then after a few pings, calms down again.
We are receiving a lot of messages like:
2013/10/28 08:49:05 [error] 20612#0: *77590567 recv() failed (104:
Connection reset by peer) while reading response header from upstream,
client: 50.xx.xx.169, server: loadbalancer, request: "GET / HTTP/1.1",
upstream: "http://10.xx.xx.84:8014/", host: "loadbalancer"
2013/10/28 08:49:05 [error] 20612#0: *77590567 no live upstreams while
connecting to upstream, client: 50.xx.xx.169, server: loadbalancer, request:
"GET / HTTP/1.1", upstream: "http://api-read-frontends/", host:
Is there configuration in Nginx that could be causing this? We have also
cusomized sysctl.conf to try and fix it, no luck so far. There's more info,
ping dumps, and our sysctl file attached to this question:
Thanks in advance, any help is immensely appreciated :) Nginx is awesome!
