Efficient CRL checking at Nginx

I want to check the validity of a client certificate against CRL. So, I
have defined in nginx.cong as follows
listen 443 ssl;
If I write my nginx.conf as follows, It works fine. My application is
expected to process a huge number of requests everyday and for each
time(request) client certificate validity is checked against CrlFile.pem
(specified at ssl_crl). 1. Does it effect servers response time because
each time it has to open and read CrlFile.pem?.
My CrlFile.pem will be updated once a day as per my requirement. So,
2. Is there any caching mechanism performed by Nginx to cache CrlFile.pem
because It has a new copy only once a day?.
3. Could you please help me in figuring out the best
practice for validating client certificate against CRL.
